Hi all. I am very sad bcoz my plants died. Only few can survive this bad weather. It is already mid of June but there is no sign of Dry season. The dry season supposed to start in April but i heard we got “Musim kemarau basah” (wet dry season). I heard the dry season will come in August.

In Surabaya, we got rain almost everyday. Sometimes all day long. The rain destroyed all my seedlings, and even bigger plants. You know i have 2 big Japanese cucumber plants but now 1 has died and 1 withered. I also planted 2 kinds of bush bean, broccoli, some varieties of bell pepper, pok choy, bitter cucumber, many varieties of sunflower, some varieties of lettuce, some varieties of radish, eggplant, pepper, some varieties of tomato, some varieties of cucumber, edamame, mustard, bunching onion, leek, onion, garlic, etc (forgot).

Many of them rot because the rain won’t stop. I had to remove all of the rotten veggies/flowers. Bigger plants survived but another enemy waiting to eat them all. We have snails in our garden. not just a few snails but soooo many of them. The smaller ones to the bigger ones. I have found a snail as big as man’s hand grip.

What a disaster,, after the caterpillar attack, now we have snails + daily rain.
