2 Weeks Later....

The regrowth in the garden since the hail storm has been astonishing. I am constantly amazed by plants, and their will to live and even to flourish no matter what is thrown at them. We did end up losing thousands of heads of lettuce, but the nightshades ( tomatoes, eggplant and peppers) are doing double time to make up for all that lost and precious time ( 2 weeks is an eternity with our short growing season). Just look at the plum and round tomatoes below .. all the green growth is new !!




The cherry tomatoes are also growing again with such vigor we have been able to get back to trellising them.


Gardening truly is an act of faith.... faith that a seed will germinate, that even against all odds, new and vigorous growth will continue, and, no matter what, there is always hope and one more chance. Once again, I am truly humbled by these simple truths.
