Re: weather

Bonnie, You've certainly had your share of water in the past year.  It's
drizzling here now, but the temps are on their way down and we'll be in the
teens in a couple of days.  At this stage there is no point worrying how
your plants will react to soil saturation, because there's little you can do
about it anyway.  One thing you could do is make notes of it - standing
water or just squishy soil, etc, how long, which plants affected.  Something
remind you  of what they went through later when you're loking at those
