Tropical storm Fred hit New England on Thursday, causing flash floods all over the area. Our garden suffers from runoff coming down the hill, which moved loads of bark mulch from the playground and crushed stone from the path into the garden, leaving a serious rut outside the gate.
Knowing that Hurricane Henri is due to hit the region tomorrow, we are attempting to reduce the damage by filling the gully in the path with rocks, and placing a temporary barrier across the gate. The slurry of water and debris has to go somewhere, but we’re hoping to divert it away from the garden beds, or at least slow it down and spread it out to reduce the damage.
