severe weather - life in the midwest

Post  landarch on 4/27/2014, 1:45 pm

beautiful weather yesterday as my garden helper and I planted some radish, spinach, carrot, and beet seeds (from the looks of the dress, she either had a wedding party or formal ball to attend after getting dirty in the garden).    


Today, tornado warnings, severe thunder storms with large hail forecasted.  My SFG boxes look a little red-neck as I've used everything I can find for protection (cement board, coolers, milk crates, tulip bulb crates, screens, boards, cattle mineral tubs, etc.).  This may work for hail...but heavy winds or a tornado may allow someone in in the next state to enjoy my garden this year.

I didn't even cover anything up.  Quarter sized hail got a couple tomaters and snap dragons this morning; their the only things that I have that are big enough to have suffered, and I have backups of those growing in the basement.  Bet we get another round later this afternoon.  Not looking forward to that!
