What you are looking at is my garden. It sits on the south west corner of the property. This photo was taken on the morning of June 24th. The Fraser River was rising — had in fact been steadily rising for a week, and now was reaching the point where it was causing some serious inconvenience to us. For as I stated earlier, this is my garden.
So in the midst of flood preparations and our own preparations to head out of town for a week, we decided we need to move the garlic to higher ground.
Fortunately we had a bed prepared — ready for the annual planting of basil — but it was there, it was dry and so, in went the garlic.
Here it is, newly planted. Not sure if this was the right thing to do. But we figured it could die here (maybe) or die in the standing water (for sure).
Will let you know how it turns out.
