Drowning Peppers


June 12, 2014 by Buffy

In a desperate attempt to save my drowning pepper plants, I dug them all up.  Then I mounded 6 inches of dirt into the row and transplanted them back.


Farmer Rick thinks I’m a nut, but what’s new there.  I only did half of the pepper row to demonstrate my point.  We have had 3 very rainy weeks!  My whole garden is drowning.  We are currently rejoicing about 2 days of sunshine in a row!  Check out this morning’s sunrise.


Here’s hoping higher ground helps my peppers!  If there are any signs of improvement, I’m going to finish the row.

  1. Gorgeous sunrise! I hope you had a cup of coffee (or something you enjoy) with with you? I hope the pepper hills work. It’s how I plant pumpkins!

  2. I feel your frustration! Yesterday, was our first day without rain in about 3 weeks. Can hardly get in the garden without sinking. I’m sure we will be wishing for some in a few weeks, though!

      Wishing for sunshine and a nice calm breeze for all of Arkansas! I waded the mud and tilled, hoping to dry the garden out some!

  3. Ugh! My garden is pretty soggy too! And I don’t even wanna talk about the weeds! Hope your peppers do well!
