Update; vegetable garden

After the hailstorm we had two weeks ago my new vegetable garden was almost completely flattened. I had my doubts as to weather the plants would recover, but except for the tomatoes all the other plants have made quite a remarkable recovery.

The row of lettuce I planted seems least affected, while the cabbages on the left still have a way to go.

Above, the spinach took a beating but is recovering. It has been a very hot dry period these last two weeks and the water supply very erratic. So apart from the hail the plants have had to cope with drought.

The green peppers and aubergines are coming on nicely.

It's always amazing how things can grow even in the harshest of conditions.

Aah, Spring comes to SA and Winter is coming to Northern California. Good luck with the garden. Nothing like fresh veges.

Wow, this is wonderful, Phillip. It looked like your garden had been destroyed. I'm so happy to see it coming back.
