Piles of hail, rivers of mud and water.

"Sorry Cort, I can't make it stop."

Baby, it's COLD out there!

A storm hit this evening. Driving rain, screeching winds, thunder and hail. I am rather fond of my new baby tomato and pepper plants and I am worried for their well-being. Tristan bundled up, grabbed a flash light and an arm full of sheets, ran to the garden and covered the tomato cages for me. The apple trees were beginning to blossom, morning will reveal the extent of damage suffered by my little orchard.
The electric blanket has warmed my bed, I'm headed that way now.
Happy Trails to you!

Oh, ick! The apples SHOULD be okay...I'd worry more about the more tropical plants like the peppers and toms. The sheets should have done the trick! Around here when they get a late freeze the farmers are out in the orchards before the sun comes up spraying the trees with water. It thaws them and seems to prevent the buds from being killed.

Good luck! Let us know how it turned out.
