Crazy weather is happening everywhere!
What happened to April showers bring May flowers?
In this wonderful month of May, we have gone from 90 degree weather to the 50's with rain, hail, thunder and lightning!
I made a mad dash in my flip flops to save some tomato's and other flowers and plants on Sunday. The hail was in full force. I guess it is the closest thing to snow my California backyard garden will ever see!
I lost 3 Tomato plants, they were simply pummeled by hail! I suppose it is a small thing to lose. But to me sad, starting plants from seed and taking care of them for a couple of months before they are ready for the big kid garden is alot of time and love. Good thing I plan ahead and always double the amount of seeds I start, just in case! Here are some of the pictures I took in my mad dash! They are a little rough, I was trying to protect my camera from the hail!
Russian Persimmon Tomato's

Lettuce Bed & Chard
Onion, Dill & Herbs
The upside, I may not have seen the first Tomato growing on the vine had I not rushed to save my plants from the hail!
Even if my hubby kinda shook his head with a little sly smile murmuring, Crazy Woman! He was kind enough to toss me a towel to dry off, since I now looked like a drowned crazy woman!
Here it is! My first Tomato! It is a Yellow Pear Tomato!
