Raised Bed Gardening and Eating Well in Austin, Texas

Dodged One Hail of a Bullet March 26, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — austinurbangardens @ 2:00 pm

Last year my garden was totally wiped out by a hail storm.  Everyone remembers it, all the west facing windows in central Austin were broken.  I was devastated at losing my garden and it was late enough in the year, much of it couldn’t be replaced.  So, watching the weather yesterday afternoon, I started getting worried that it would happen again.  Hail, everywhere.  Golfball sized and larger.  I covered the garden, dragged all of the potted plants, (mostly peppers and blackberries and herbs) under cover, and waited.  I got some pretty good rain, but thankfully no hail.  I hope no one lost their garden to  hail yesterday.  It is such a horrible thing.  At least its early enough in the year to replant though.
