Q.How to help garden from too much water and high temps?
I live in the Midwest close to Lake Michigan. It is very humid and temps are in 90’s with storms almost everyday. My ground is getting saturated. Should I turn the soil to help air the soil out? I have planted this garden 2 times now and it’s finally coming in. Worried about onions, cucumbers and tomatoes. I have watermelons and snow peas and green beans just coming in. Please help, as I am on a small budget and need to can most of my garden.
If your garden is planted in rows, you can certainly turn the soil; you might even deepen the area between the rows, to act sort of like canals, and try to drain off excess water. This is the time to think about what steps you might take after this growing season to deal with such problems in the future. Here are a couple of articles that have some food for thought: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/excessive-rain-on-plants.htm
