Big hail in the Atlanta area

Post  GreenBlueberry on 4/15/2011, 9:16 pm

I just got hit with quarter-size hail. First time in over 8 years I had to go to the basement because of a tornado watch. Sirens blasting and horizontal rain.

I waited to plant my last tomato until tomorrow, but I did plant my tomatillos 2 days ago and they were still kinda lanky this morning. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they are upright.

Middle Tennessee had bad weather, too -- actually most of the day, but about 30 minutes ago it was raining so hard and I'm sure I heard hail. I was actually afraid to look because the wind was blowing so hard. Am hoping my plants weren't beat to death!

Thanks for the heads up. Its all coming my way.....YIKES ! Battened down the hatches. A large part of my SFG was shredded from last weeks hail. Hope it misses us this time.

No I just came from the community garden. The storm was horrible last night. I lost one basil, another one was partially unrooted, probably 1/3 of my beets and my spinach. All plants suffered leaf damage. I had this little jalapeño growing, but I found it on the ground.



I suppose I will go again tomorrow to plant my last tomato and to see how the plants are recovering (if they are).
