Very wet soil!
The rain the last two days was great for all my little seedlings. They are all looking very perky. However, some of my large plants and trees fell over. I guess the soil got too wet. My large eggplant in the raised bed had fallen over completely. I had to put a six foot 2" x 2" stake next to the plant and tie it up this morning. My bougainvillea fell over and the roots were showing. I used another stake for it. I still have a very tall (10') podacarpus (yew pine) to support. It's next to my fence. I will do the best I can. Thank goodness I have a gardener. ( he comes on Tuesdays) He can help me with the podacarpus if I can't do it myself.
