On Saturday night the wind picked up and it didn’t stop for 3 days!! Yesterday was by far the worst and it came with heavy rain drops that just tore through the garden. Now I am not taking about your average wind but lovely wind gusting at 60km and above. I thought for sure that we were going to have a lot more damage in the yard, but all the trees seem to still be in one piece. We are late in putting the gazebo back together this year so there was no damage there.
On Monday night I planted my cabbages, broccoli and cauliflower in the garden as it wasn’t gusting too badly and they were not calling for wind the rest of the week. With the gusts on Tuesday and Wednesday I was regretting my decision A LOT. My poor little plants got the &*(% kicked out of them. I really hope they are able to bounce back from this. I do have 6 more cabbage and cauliflower out in the new garden that didn’t get damaged so I shouldn’t go without this year. However, I am still saddened about putting in all the work in planting seedlings just to have Mother Nature take them away. Oh well that is gardening for ya
Sad little broccoli
Sad little cabbage
wilting basil with bug bites
I have no idea what this is but there are a lot of them coming up. I am thinking some of the wildflowers I planted last year may have gone to seed and are giving me little gifts this year...I might just pull them up though..LOL
She came planted in a rather small pot with a built in tomato cage. I really liked the idea of just having a patio tomato plant, however some of the leaves are starting to yellow/brown which I think means it needs a bigger pot. I am was thinking of planting it in one of those huge grey tubs you see behind it, but I have a hard time keeping plants alive in those...so we shall see
In other gardening news I bought a little greenhouse last week and Mr.P, but it together for me on Monday. This way I could put my plants outside without them blowing away. I must say I love it and it makes me feel like a real gardener....lol I know I know it’s tiny!! But I love it and it was only 25 bucks so I love it even more. Right now it is full of tomato plants, peppers, eggplants, basil, and an assortment of flowers. I hope to get the flowers planted today and the veggies tonight if Mr.P is home.
Okay off to do some watering
