Damage Control

Well, this morning the sun is steadily rising and the sky is a deep, endless blue. And the local radar confirms it! Couldn't say the same for earlier in the week. Wow, what a set of storms to roll through here. How did your garden make out?

We suffered a lot of wind damage with the corn and tomatoes taking the brunt of it. Today we'll be adjusting stakes and re-mounding.

I don't know if there is anything to do to prevent this. Perhaps a fence around your garden that's planted with something like peas or beans might act like a wind shield. Does anyone have any success with this or some other type of screen?

BTW -- picked up the first native tomato this week from one of the many roadside stands in town. One word: Mmmmm. Can wait for all ours to start ripening on the vine.
