We had several HARD storms yesterday afternoon, evening, and into early this morning. There was a lot of wind and DRIVING rain. I was afraid of what I might find in the garden with my tender, new plants.
The part of the garden that had the hardest time was my labels! They’re all dirty – I guess from blowing rain and Mel’s mix. I’ll have to clean them up at some point, but today was too busy. Here you can see the three raised bed boxes on the north side of the garden. The plant that had the hardest time was the red leaf lettuce. Some of it looks pretty beaten down, but I’m hoping they’ll perk up.
The Georgia Sweet Onions are doing well. The empty square will hold more spaghetti squash plants soon, I hope. I planted three tomato plants today, plus one celery plant and three spaghetti squash plants today.
My spinach plants and Romaine lettuce plants are doing fine, so far. I’ll be able to start harvesting the outer leaves soon. On the right is a new spaghetti squash plant I transplanted today from the window sill.
I started two squares of radishes.
I have broccoli and cauliflower plants. You can see some of the celery plants on the upper left of this photo.
We have more forecast severe storms coming Sunday night into Monday morning, so fingers will be crossed again.
