so we caught the edges of the storm that hit northern Washington yesterday and in ten minutes of hail i lost 25 Kohlrabi plants:( (5 or 6 might make it, if i nurse them back:xeye:). not to mention the rhubarb took a real pounding (it will recover, i cut and took in all the damaged stems). and the baby spinach plants are looking a little pommeled.

anyone else having any weather woes recently?:(

yeah, cold weather still here in Sacramento for some reason...lows in the mid 40's, snow forecast for the mountains east of us, just a few rain showers for us, but cold...

weatherman said the last few years we were already in the mid 90's at this point...

sorry about your Kohlrabi...:(

Its been freezing since Nov. We've had 2 good days (20C) and its back to artic winds on Tue coming and 8C. I dont live in the artic. Whats up with that. It should be 30C by now, not winter.

No tomatoes, still have winter plants flowering.

hey, Ireland checks in..:thumb:

did that volcano in Iceland effect you guys there or was it exaggerated? any smoke or dust?
I didnt see any fall, but I did see cool coloured sunsets and greenish night skys. Wish I could blame that for the weather, but no one here has ever seen a colder year. Bring back the rain, I wont complain anymore..

What, no global warming there either??
We are having a cool, rainy spring yet. My cantalope seeds have had to be replanted because they apparently rotted. Everything else looks good.

Recently had a severe thunderstorm roll through with high winds and hail. Knocked down all my tomatoes, peppers and snapped a 20ft aluminum flag pole.

Luckily the plants had rooted good enough that I was able to stand them back up and re-pack them with dirt.

Put things into perspective on some of the adversities our ancestors would have faced. Wonder what plan B was for them when something like this happened? :eek: Couldn't just run down to the local supermarket
