There might not be a garden tomorrow!

Just got back from the garden, my neighbor and I were out there battening down the hatches, 50-60 mph gusts and my 8 foot tall tomatoes are DOWN, with 2 dozen big green ones on the vine! Sorry this is so dark, I was hoping the wild storm clouds would show up, but the winds kicked up pretty good about halfway through, now it is driving rain, thunder and lightning!

All my hard work! I can't even think about it now, I'm going to read a book...

  1. Oh Erin! I'm hoping and praying the destruction in your garden isn't too, too bad. What the %$#* can we do when Mother Nature throws something like this at us? Your weather has just been too violent this past year. Move North, young family, move North!

  6. Hey, girl...if the wind beats the crap out of the tomato plants, you'll probably have a bumper crop! I'm getting lots of them since the wind/rain took mine down. Of course, I can't find them in all the tangled foliage :-(

    You just can't get a break this year, can you? *HUGS*

  10. So very sorry! If it's not a fungus or a bug doing us gardeners in, then it's the weather. Don't take it too hard, some things will survive. And, think of the fall garden! No storms in autumn, right?!

  11. Oh, no! That's right... Most of the world has *weather*... Two years of "warm and sunny" didn't take long to forget about how emotional nature can be sometimes. I find myself missing the thrill of an oncoming hurricane, and thunder (and I hate thunder).

    I hope everything turns out all right in the morning, and that you and the boys (neighbor too ;-) ) are hunkered down and safe.

  12. Yuck. I hope the trees stay in tact and your toms can be propped up when it's all done. Good luck.

  13. I got it yesterday too. My tomatoes are fine, but my poor corn that was just starting to form ears is leaning badly!

  14. Oh-oh, how are things looking this morning Erin? Fingers crossed the damage is repairable.

  15. I'll do an update post, it's not as bad as it could have been! And Jo, actually... fall is the worst - October is the peak of Hurricane season here and in November the Nor'easters start coming through! At least my plants are lower to the ground in the fall garden!
