See what damage a hail storm had on my garden.


check out my spring garden pics before & after a huge hail storm.

Nothing like starting over from seedlings again; planted another set of everything the day after the storm hit.

Sorry about that. Spring storms here in Texas are brutal we didn't have any of what you got.

That is so sad seeing all your work get smashed into the dirt. Hope your remaining plants continue to grow –even stronger than before.

Thanks everyone,
Saturday the day after the storm, it all looked destroyed. I planted more seeds in anticipation of everything having to be replaced.
But after cleaning up the dead leaves I noticed new growth on most plants.
YiPpY SkIpPy
So all is not completely lost YeA!!!! And I have tons more seeds planted.

In my opinion, things look fine from seeing your pics. Some of your plants have there should still grow just fine...just allow nature a little time and the plants will fix themselves. I see no need to replant everything. That would just set you back by about a month or more. Plants are stronger than the "instructions" on the package say they are. They should be ok if you take care of them and give them time... Things in your garden should be just fine. Just make sure you haven't over planted now that you've added new seeds. I wish you the best. I hope that you have a great gardening summer this year.
