As you probably know, we got quite a bit of rain last week here in Southern California. The golf course nearby has been closed until yesterday because of the wetness. Now it is open, but no electric carts are allowed–still quite wet ground.
So imagine my surprise when my garden began watering this morning! I cancelled it, of course, it is quite saturated still. But the moisture calculations seemed not to agree with reality. They showed it time to add water. I can only presume that the super-saturated condition is not being properly dealt with. I did a manual fill of the zones today, but they still think they will need watering on Sunday, two days from now. I seriously doubt the zone will be dried out by then, so I will monitor it and manually fill it again. (I had manually filled it a day or so after the last heavy rain, but forgot to monitor the situation since there was a light rain few days ago.
The moisture level seems to max out at 108%. I’m guessing it is about 150% or so right now. Maybe more. Is there a rationale for the apparent limit?
