Starting a new thread rather than hijacking the "how's your garden going" thread about the weather...
So, so, sick of the rain, the sodden pastures, the water hyacinth that's acting as excellent mulch over about two acres of our pasture...
(left by the flood)
We have been on this property for going on 12 years, and this is the wettest its every stayed after a flood (and we've been here for three major and one minor flood in that time). I hate farm drains, but oh, what I'd give to have an earthmover to dig a few around the fencelines!
Unfortunately, the aquatic weed in the local water/drainage lines in the locality is preventing proper drainage, but also, its just been incredibly wet!
We have got our flood mound though, so that's something that this weather has been good for...helping it compact, and also giving us the drive to have it done in the first place.
I need to go down to the local produce shop and buy some grass seed to spread over the paddocks, so we have some winter grass to come through.
