I would suggest hiring a professional to look at it and level off the earth - or move. How did you get to the street, wear hip boots? If the second white building is your garage it must be a pain getting to your car every day.
There's a back path behind the tree that's raised. The last three feet of it or so is under-water by a couple inches. The truck is actually behind the bushes on the left.

Thanks! The problem is that I'm renting, and I don't know how much redirection I can do, especially since I am surrounded by potato and cow fields, so I don't know where to direct too
Redirect elsewhere in your yard, away from where you plan on gardening.
I have 5 foot ditches on either side of me, that are too flooded, and in fact spilling into my yard :( The road leading to my house is raised higher than my yard as well :/
Where do the ditches come from, the road?
They separate the road and yard, but yeah, essentially. I live in a valley as well, which doesn't help. It's a beautiful valley, but known for flooding
Hmm...this may take a while but you may try inserting a low wall for yourself to step over. It could be made of a thin aluminum or even a recycled plastic for low cost. Leave hole at the bottom for drain hole to avoid garden flood. Insert 1" in dirt.
