An unexpected (for us) storm blew through our area Friday night taking out trees and power lines. We are all safe, but some of our older trees suffered significant losses. We are without power and are currently staying with family because of the extreme heat. Millions were affected by this storm and our prayers are with them. I am so grateful that we escaped without greater damage. 80 mph gusts of wind are frightening! I expected a total loss in the garden, but that wasn’t the case! While our neighbor lost his garden, ours is unscathed. The following photos were taken pre storm. I uploaded them minutes before we lost power hoping not to miss our little garden party. I don’t have my notes from the past two weeks with me, so I will just narrate as I go!
Silas, thrilled with a worm. He put it in his mouth-I shrieked.
Kentucky pole beans are planted along the random structures. There was supposed to be a neat row of zucchini plants across the front, but help with labeling resulted in a mixture of squashes, some of them the sprawling winter squash sort.
How about all of you? How’s your garden growing? Were any of you affected by Friday’s east coast storm?
