Garden Flooding

June 10, 2008


One day when Eun Ah visited Urbana for the first time she found Michael and Rob staring frustratedly at the flooded annual beds and chicken area in the garden. Note the objects placed around so that the chickens could use them as islands where they could stay dry. This was a combo of sump pump water (from the house) and continuous rain that logged the soil through May and into June. Flooding mades it difficult to work on the garden.. Michael diverted the sump water to the sewer in the street after this. The swale in the garden can take some water but this was too much this year.
