rain and hail


We have gotten 5 1/2 inches of rain in the last four days and two pretty major hail storms. The pepper plants are looking tattered. Luckily most of the tomatoes have cages around them, which seems to have protected them.

Could use a couple of sunny days before the next rain.

Re: rain and hail


Finn, sounds like nasty hail. Glad to hear your tomatos survived.

We're having a cold spell, but not a lot of rain. Also no frost, fortunately. My balcony rose is growing like mad, and I can see the first flowerbuds tucked away in the folds of the shoots. Oh, the waiting!

Re: rain and hail


It seems to be the spring for odd weather normally we are worried about hail here and it missed us. Hope the pepper plants revive.

Re: rain and hail


I'm sorry to hear that you're getting nasty weather.

It's beautiful spring weather up here, sunny, mild temperatures - sometimes a little too windy, but I'm not complaining!

Waaaay too early to be planting peppers though - another three weeks at least.

Sorry to hear you are getting hail.

This spring has been really weird here too.
We had quite a bit of Hail a few weeks ago.
The news just said tonight,, we might get some this weekend too.
The poor plants are sooo confused.

Hang in there,, summer & better weather will show up sooner or later.

Re: rain and hail


[sign in to see URL] hope your pepper plants can make a come back. Hail is such a nasty lil thing.

We've been so inundated with rain here we can't even get into our garden to get it planted. IF it doesn't rain tonight or tomorrow, my DH and his brother will get it tillered up tomorrow and as much planted as possible.
I'm going to get my housework done, and if it's not raining, I'm going to get started on my Faerie garden tomorrow. Today I bought a white and purple Foxglove, and some other stuff that likes partial shade to all shade. I found some really pretty sun catchers to hang in the tree above at Big Lots tonight. I got one, but will go get a few more probably Wednesday while I'm out. I can hardly wait to get started on it. I need the guys to get my herb bed prepped too so I can get my herbs in the ground before it's too late. My poor rosemary keeps getting blown off the table on the porch. I have it sitting between some of the others [sign in to see URL] hopefully it'll sit tight till I can get it planted. I'll eventually find what I want to put in my Faerie garden [sign in to see URL] far as little statues and stuff go. Almost bought a really cute bobbing head/tail turtle this [sign in to see URL] wasn't sure that was what I really wanted there. It just needs to be more magical for me for some reason.
