I awoke to a hard banging on the ceiling of my house and knocks on the window panes. I saw my husband wake up and out the room door he went. I got up and looked out the window and it was hailing really bad. I got up looking for him and I went into my daughters room and he was in there with her. I grab her and asked her if she wanted to get in the bed with us. She said "yes". I went into my bedroom to look out at the garden and the tree was bent almost to the ground. I was thinking " my poor plants". When the weather stopped..I went out into the garden and my heart was broken.
My tomato plants!
I am grateful that I had about 8 plants that broke in half. The rest were just broken up pretty badly.
I research online and I am trying to save the part that was broken off. I can not start by seed now on the plants. I will cut the plant and put it in dirt to see if it will start a root system. Fingers crossed.
I put the tomatoes in a healing chamber so they can have some humidity. We will see how it will turn out.
Mustard's Greens have been torn to shreds.
I have decided that I am going to make the best of the mustard greens and collards and serve them for dinner today.
I am going to stay positive about the situation and know that my garden will make a comeback.
The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
