It is heartbreaking, yesterday’s massive thunderstorms, golf-ball sized hail and high winds have impacted every single plant in my garden that I’ve worked so incredibly hard in since March. My best guess is that about 60% will live but only time will tell, some are already dead.
the plants that got the worst of it:
1. Herbs. Completely decimated.
2. Peppers, the hour if hail damage they took shredded the leaves, I might have only 1-2 jalepenos left...
3. Green, lettuces, plants closer to the ground
4. Turnips. They’re gone.
5. Carrots - not sure they will make it but fingers are crossed
6. Tomatoes - I’ve had to throw away several. The bugger more mature ones should make it
7. Potatoes - lots of damage to the leaves
8. Eggplant. I don’t think they will make it
We will see where things end up. I’m hopeful that pieces of the garden will survive.
In the end, I want to leave this world slightly richer than when I entered it; some days this is more daunting than others but as I scale my personal summits and the passage of time, I know that I will have failed if anyone can look to me and say that I left anything on the table and didn’t live life to its absolute fullest.
