Rainy days coming!

Okay so my forecast shows 7 plus days of steady rain... Should I throw some plastic over my garden?!

I have a frame over it built with PVC pipe and had bird netting over it because I have a pair of black birds who were stealing my seedlings to make nests out of.

I could easily fit some plastic over....will the rain hurt my garden?

Re: Rainy days coming!

I wouldn't expect so, unless you've got an incredibly shallow water table or something else that will keep the water from draining downwards.

We had an incredibly rainy summer a couple of years ago, and the only thing I lost were the zucchinis that were (unknowingly) planted in undrained containers.
