Here it is. I know I am long overdue but here is July’s update for the Trash to Treasure Garden. We saw a lot of rain up here in the north and while it was good to have those rain days here and there, it wasn’t so good when it rained for days on end. Last week we saw a really bad rain storm that resulted in golf ball size hail. The rain came down really fast and the wind was whipping through my trees. Branches went flying. I had a little laugh as I made a video for Mr. Yum who was away at camp with kiddo. I felt like I was back in Oklahoma in tornado alley.
Here is a video of all the rain damage.
We’ve been able to salvage some zucchini, some tomatoes, cucumbers, some small potatoes, the last of the green beans and the wax beans. I have been sorting through the snap peas but a lot of them are bloated from the rain or dead from being on broken stalks. I am not sure if we are going to be able to salvage much else. There are some wax beans still hanging on. I think a squash. Some cucumbers are trying to survive. Potatoes need to grow a bit more, same for corn. I am not sure the eggplant are going to produce anything. I might get some more carrots. I am hoping for some more tomatoes.
While the garden is not a total loss, we have lost a considerable amount of food. Depending on how the rest of the season goes, we may or may not grow back our $200 spent on getting the garden in order.
