The garden has taken a beating this past week. A couple hail storms, some sleet and lots of rain.

We don’t get very big hailstones in this area, however they were big enough to shred the leaves on the tomato plants, kill the basil and punch holes in the spinach!


I will have to replace some plants. At least three tomato plants for sure. The rest look ragged but I think they will make it.

I may pick the rest of the spinach, blanch and freeze it.


As for most of the plants in the garden, the storms knocked them down, but they look okay. I like to think it’s made them stronger.
