We have had thunderstorms every afternoon for the past
three weeks here in Norther Nevada. Today's was
accompanied with pea and marble sized hail. (I
do adore the free water!)
My zuke leaves now have a few holes in them. Is
this a problem? Will they grow back?
some leaves will repair themselves, but others may
not... depends upon the extent of the damage and
the plant's determination if it is worth doing. it's
a summation game. break enough tubes and the nutrients
can't keep up with the evaporation through the leaves
then it will wilt.
we had a large enough hailstorm come through
last night to do some damage to various plants
so i get to see plant trauma response in action
again. i'm sure some of the squash leaves will
collapse and give up but the plants are so large
and always putting on so much new growth that i
can't imagine this making much difference. at
their rate they'll take over the world well before
the fall frosts come.
roof leaked again... *grumble*
