Gone to Hail
We had a big hail storm last night. This Delphinium is one survivor. I really thought it would be among the first to go, but it looks OK. We get these storms every few years it seems. Three years ago (before I had a vegetable garden and therefore didn't care as much), we had several hail storms early in the season and there were hardly any fresh local tomatoes to be had that year.
A view of my peas, raspberries in the bottom left. Not sure if the peas will recover.
There was still hail built up along north and west faces this morning.
Last night out my back door.
Last night out my front door.
Intrepid rhubarb. This plant has been pasted several times by hail and has always bounced back. I guess that means a second crop of rhubarb...
Pulverized peas and lettuce.
Soggy slop formerly known as red leaf lettuce.
I did one picture-taking round this morning, and need to look more closely to see what might pull through and what's lost. Most of the tomatoes are gone, green beans are OK. More pictures later.
