As many members know, we had horrific flooding in BC the past month. Very serious in the sumas flats which is approx 15 km's from our home. We are on the north side of one of the major rivers ( Vedder) and protected via an extensive diking system. Although we did not experience any severe flooding, we did however receive overland water from the 230 mm of rain that fell on the first event in early November when it all started. In our 37 years on the property we have never seen this volume of rain. Our home and out buildings remained dry but our green house was covered with 10" ( 25cm) of water for approx 3 days. As a result we lost a number of young grafts that I did this summer as they were covered with water for the extended period. The root stock itself is all robust and healthy once again but the fragile grafts did perish. I believe we may have approx 10 remaining now which will be pampered thru out the winter. All large container JM's were fine including many container grown herbs and roses. Also some of our less hardy plants all survived the excess water which was great to see. Ornimental grasses all did fine, all potted strawberries are still thriving even though they were completely submerged. Now time to clean things up and pressure wash the brick ladden walk spaces to remove silt and residue. Several small birds flew into our green house as well and seemed to remain inside for two days ( several finches and even a pair of hummingbirds). That was the most surprising thing as normally they always fly away when we enter the green house. It was almost as if they were there to cheer us up with there chirping and constant flying. They were also feeding on the raised bed herbs and plants that remained dry.
