Lets add some drama into this...

June 16, 2018::

TIMMBBERRR!!!!






CRUSSHHHHH!!!!! Goodbye garden





Lets look closer at the damage which I didn't really mind, better this than that dead tree hit the house in a wind storm.

Everything flattened.. Fava Beans, Cukes, Potatoes




Radishes




Fava Beans snapped in half




Bell Peppers tried to run away




Potatoes popped up out of the ground or got crushed underground. Some still remain in good shape.




So, next update will be of any harvesting or compost pile. There's always Next Year.

Oh... I ripped up most of the Tomatoes too..

Oh no, Cam, you have had some drama for sure this season! I can't believe you've had so little sun! At least your cool season stuff did great. Were your tomato plants diseased or just not getting enough sun/heat? It looks like your peppers and potatoes are doing well. Sad that the tree took everything out - but plants are very resilient and I would bet most/many of them will rebound if given the chance..

We've had the exact opposite weather here - scorching heat and little rain the past 3 weeks or so. This week is supposed to do a 180 - clouds and rain/storms and temps in the low-mid 70s for the next 6 days. I hope it doesn't let disease set in. Everything is off to an amazing start so far.. we'll see.

Check it out... I should leave it as is to hide the compost pile.





Look at all the roots forming inside the compost pile. That's actually the "bad" potato I threw in there. Looks like it's rooting and producing the plant but no tubers.
