Shit. I’m sitting on the bed looking at a big hail storm pummel my garden. And my car. And my house.


I have no idea what things are going to look like when this is done, but it looks pretty bad.

  1. Give the garden a few days to recover before you pass judgment. I’ve found that things bounce back a lot better than I expect them to, even from the golfball-size hailstones. It’s things with large leaves like tacalpa trees, squashes and hollyhocks that suffer the most. Columbine shrugs hail off, for all it looks frail. The trees will re-leaf, too.

  2. it’s more the poblano pepper seedlings that I *just* put out that I’m worried about–many of my plants are either prairie plants, or heirloom varieties–those I figure will make it.

    I still haven’t gone out to look yet–I think another cup of coffee is needed first :)
