We have had a crazy weather week here. Rain, hail the size of golf balls and tornado warnings. For the most part the garden did well. The hail did some damage on the tomato plant and must have hit our only tomato dead on. It is now handing on by a thread for dear life. Yeah, we're gonna lose our only tomato.
Someone last week pointed out about there being a lot of green growth but no real fruit/veg. I agree. It has been very frustrating to see the flowers go un-pollinated then they die off. I haven't seen any bees around at all lately which concerns me.
Both purple and regular green beans are doing well. The reg ones are really taking to the netting.
The potatoes are doing...ok. all the harsh weather has damaged them some and I had to tie them up or lose them so they're growing oddly
No issues with the corn, weather=struggle in keeping them upright
Pepper plant is trying to make it...we'll see
WTF is up with this leaf lettuce...it wont grow taller than 2 inches but won't die!
The green part of the carrots seems too delicate, maybe it's still early in their growth
Weird looking hail. Foot added for scale.
The garden right after the second round of hail. I was crushed when I saw our tomato just hanging there, knowing we would lose it.
The sky was ominous prior to the storm.
Took this right before the first tornado siren went off. The pups did fine during the storm although when the second round of hail came through it sounded like someone was beating our roof with a baseball bat which scared the life out of me. Our FJ Cruiser has some dents on the hood to remind us of the storm. They're not huge tho, have to look hard to see them. More trouble than it's worth dealing with insurance to get them fixed.
Our first purple green bean.
Our tomato......our storm damaged tomato.
Our cucumber plants have a bunch of flowers that Hailey would love to eat.
During week four of our garden we had bad weather come through. I wanted to share a video of the light show that Brian Luenser had caught. Our house was right near where these transformers were exploding! We were without power until about 3:30 a.m.
