Yes, we are still without power, so I am once again writing from a cafe in town.
I had a chance to take some photos of my post-hurricane garden, and I am sharing them with you. What’s most interesting about this experience is seeing which plants survived and which ones didn’t. This depended a lot on where they were planted, but it also depended on plant type. The fleshy ones seemed to be more vulnerable.
And here’s my Joe Pye weed – flattened.
Now for the good news:
And finally, the tomatoes. Before the storm, I pulled all of them out, along with their stakes, except for a single plant – “Great White.” This I allowed to sprawl naturally, as a kind of experiment. Check out the photo below. Maybe I should have done this with all my tomatoes…
I must get into the garden this weekend and do a clean-up. I guess I’ll plant some carrots where the beans used to be.
