Oh my, has it ever. I've been whining here about our hot, dry summer, but all that changed abruptly about a week ago. We've had three storms go through and it seems like Mother Nature is intent on giving us the rain we've been missing for the past couple of months.
This was taken as I was on my way to work at noon last Friday. Then we had overnight storms with strong winds two nights in a row. We awoke one day to our trellis and these heavy, concrete planters blown over.
I've pretty much given up on my summer vegetable garden and pulled up everything but two of the sickly looking tomato plants and my sweet potatoes and replanted with lettuce, spinach, cabbage & cauliflower. I haven't done a fall veggie garden before, but have heard it's a little less challenging once the plants are established.
