Garden Post 3--SNOW Aaack!

SNOW ON MY PLANT BABIES!  Yes, just as I feared! Aaack!  There's that Murphy's Law at work again in my life.

I know, I know.  You smart gardener people are shaking your heads in an "I told you so" manner and saying out loud to your computer screen, "Lisa, you should have waited."

Well, I didn't.  So here's what I did to save them. . .

It started out as cold rain.  It rained all day.

 I noticed the temps going lower and lower.  So the kidlets and I ran outside in the constant drizzle and mud and covered each BABY with a bucket or bowl.  

 We put rocks on top because the wind was really starting to blow.

And then we waited for morning . . . 

 It snowed overnight.  We all hoped the plants were okay.

 When the temps went abovet 30 degrees and the snow started melting, I went and checked the damage.  The plants looked okay.
 There were a few signs of stress though.

 This tomato looked a little droopy.

 But this tomato seemed strong and robust.

The petals of the flowers died, but hopefully they'll make a comeback because the rest of the plant looks good.

We got another day or so of yucky weather . . . and so continues our Garden Drama.
