Dug a side trench to drain it but it still has standing water.

So....

I pulled the mulch back, threw in some peatmoss and composted manure, put my taters in it, covered them with peat moss and some dry topsoil I scrounged up from the garage, pulled the mulch back in between the little tater hills, and said a little prayer.

Hopefully the Lord will bring out the Irish in us and we can get this patch through the monsoon and onto the table.
Sounds like an amazing recovery to nature that refuses to cooperate.
