That is what i did. First i got this rake, a brinly cultivator i believe
No more pretty tractor. I may change my screen name to joe dirt.
Then i went down and raked the garden downhill with the cultivator, the best i could. Opened up some nice grooves draining the bed downhill. I also used the bottom plow to dig a couple furrows downhill at each corner, where the water was pooled up the worst. It was so muddy that i got stuck at one point, stuck a rock under the wheel, which launched me out of the rut while throwing off a chain. at least i got out of the hole. drove up to the house and shut it down for the rest of that day. arthritis flaring up pretty good from all that bouncing around. heat and ice for the rest of that day.
Then the Mrs. moved a bunch of lower sod clumps into the mud holes higher up. Basically we are trying to move the bed downhill, away from the steep slope above, to where the lower edge drops off so it may have a chance to gravity drain.
It is starting to dry up pretty well, although now there's 5 days of showers in the forecast. hope to get out in between the raindrops and keep picking away at it. will see how it does. been a wet spring
