Last year we finally, finally got a garden in. It only took about three years. We had some strawberries, which were promptly eaten before I could even wash them, and didn’t get to try any of course. We planted pumpkins, zucchini, cucumbers, and four tomato plants. Everything was blooming, everything was doing so well. We had baby cucumbers, some zucchini that would so close to being ready to pick, and flowers on the pumpkin plant. Then this happened:
A hail storm in July, in three minutes almost everything as destroyed. We ate two zucchinis pock marked with holes, but nothing else was salvageable. The garden recovered, and we thought we may get something else growing, more pumpkin flowers were observed, but then it snowed on Sept 6. And that was the end of our garden. We are trying again this year.
