Hail last night

Post  johnp on 5/24/2015, 4:47 pm

Well I planted all the rest of my transplants yesterday and it hailed last night. Four peppers gone, branches knocked off the ugly, non growing tomato plants and holes in the eggplants. Carrots and dill weed look fine. Been to cold, none of the squash, corn or cuc's are up. Bindweed has taken over, I am going to learn how to knit or something Rolling Eyes

Aww, what a bummer. Mother nature sure loves teaching us lessons and showing us what she's got! We had hail for the first time last year while I was at work and I came home to a garden in tatters. I've never seen that before, and it hadn't been predicted. If I had any indication that it was coming I guess I would have covered with plastic. But everything sprung back eventually. How do you know the peppers are gone?

The peppers were knocked down and broken right at the ground like they were nipped off. I can go buy replacements but the tomatoes are just ugly. They haven't grown any, most are purple with shades of yellow. I did put bonemeal in the MM before planting but nothing is happening, I guess from being so cold, high today 59.

We had golf ball size hail for the first time in many years. Really tore things up.
Hope your garden recovers before your season is over.

I'm so sorry about the hail. Maybe the tomatoes will perk up when the weather gets warmer. ??
