Bridge Over What?

Remember the trench that we dug for the power to the new building? Yesterday we had some pretty heavy rains and this is what I found when I went outside this afternoon.
The pallet I had put down so the grandkids wouldn't be stepping in mud going across the yard. Now my bridge over a pile of mud is a bridge over a little gully.
That wasn't the only place that sunk...
I wonder if more places along the trench are going to sink or if it's done?
My next garden project is the small garden on the south side of the lawn. This shouldn't take me too long, it looks a lot worse than it really is.
This is where my watermelon are growing. Do you see the melon in the middle of the picture? Look in the shadows, click on the picture to enlarge it.
Here's one that was at the end of the row. My son says he saw about a dozen of these little guys.
We saw several pumpkin starts too, like the one in the middle of this picture.
I'll probably go out this afternoon to work on the garden, it's in the shade of a maple tree in the late afternoon/evening.

It'll be some time yet for those melons and pumpkins to mature but I'm sure your already excited about eating melon at your cookouts and pumpkin pies for dessert. Hope all is well. Have a great night.

LOL - the rains did that to a trench that hubby dug to bury the electric fence line, then the horses walked on it while it was muddy and it sunk even more. Luckily they didn't hit the pipe that housed the wire!

Your garden looks great! Re: the sunflowers - now is certainly the time in KS to get some great shots of sunflowers. There's several fields around us just full of them; I'm hoping to get some photos this weekend.

Dug another trench yesterday that I should go get pictures of. Still need to fill the area under the "bridge" and haven't gotten around to cleaning up the little garden.

I've been harvesting zucchini and arugula. Can't wait for the tomatoes and okra to start producing.

OG - I'll be watching for more sunflower pictures from you!
