Drainage challenges

Today, the amount of rain exposed drainage problems in our new garden. Both beds were pools of water. Under the layers of topsoil and compost is a bed of clay on limestone. Since the site is so flat, the rain has no where to go.

Nancy dug a ditch around the communal bed today to give the water an exit from the garden bed. The ditch drains to the back of the site. We will have to take a look at the family plots. We may want to consider digging a ditch system there as well.
