After the freaky hail storm in August, Zach pulled up most of our destroyed eggplants, tomato, and pepper plants. The ones that we saved, have now fully recovered.
It's a little late in the growing season though, so we're hoping everything will have enough time to ripen. Especially those mellow star peppers. They are so delicious!
The week after the hail storm, we planted for fall. We have broccoli,
rat's tail radish,
Our herb corner is a mess! Our tarragon plant is covered in cobwebs, our mints are gangly looking, the thyme and the marjoram look sad, and the cilantro have bolted. But it seems the oregano,
and shiso are still hanging in there and loving this slightly cooler weather!
It's also a lot of fun for us that our everbearing and "wild" strawberries are making a fall comeback and putting out handfuls of treats every couple of days!
We may lament the loss of our 15 tomato plants, but the cat is definitely happy to have space on the patio to roam again! He snacks freely from the catnip plant,
and occasionally, he even finds a friend to play with!
p.s. in case you're wondering, the chipmunk survived the ordeal!
