Three minute of hail destroyed a season of growing. Peppers are bruised,
tomatoes knocked down and leaves shredded. The wind blew several plants off
the deck so I've got lots of broken posts.
And I was so looking forward to sharing a huge crop report. Anyway I got
alot of red and yellow peppers and a feast of cherry tomatoes and the asian
eggplants were prolific. But it's still August and I was expecting another
six to eight weeks of crops.
Am I the only one in VA that got wiped out?
Oh no! How disappointing and frustrating.
How bad are the peppers? I've seen some chili peppers make a
remarkable recovery. Oh, you won't get as much as if the hail hadn't
happened, but you might salvage a bit of your fall season.
I had some wind damage here in South Carolina last week when
Bonnie passed through, but nothing as bad as your hail storm sounds.
My remaining tomatoes were knocked over, and all my Corno De Toro
peppers lost at least one pepper-loaded branch. There were lots of
unripe peppers striped off the plants, too. Luckily I always over
plant, so I still have plenty of peppers.
Sorry for what happened to your garden. That kind of disaster would
really put a damper on my summer.
