This last week has been a nightmare. I live in the wettest county east of the Cascades. Though I’m in the mountains in north Georgia, we have qualified as a rain forest.
This last week, it has rained in torrents around the clock. We lost power yesterday for half a day, been under tornado warnings and watches. I was smart in that eearly on, I crafted a plastic sheet to cover my garden for either harsh rain or harsh sun. We get both. All was going well until yesterday, I noticed something had been eating my leaves - but only on certain trees. I can seem to see them but I see the damage.
My wife has a non-chemical spray that I tried. It is supposed to be environmentally friendly. I used it but this morning, some of the leaves were basically gone!! Eaten away.
My garden is in a cage so I know it is not rabbits or dear. We have a lot of both and also bear.
And the leaves looked droopy and the lower ones are yellow!!!
I have tried to keep the soil healthy and have tried to prevent the rain from flooding in though they have gotten more wet than I would prefer.
I’m lost like a ball in the high weeds!! What do I do to save my garden?
I do have a light and a tent. I have not even set it up and was going to wait until fall/winter before doing so. Should I consider moving them indoors?
