Stormy weather...

Thursday, 26 Apr 12 Rainy 16°C / 61°F

April showers, huh? I put my first transplants out into the garden yesterday. Three broccoli plants. Between the rain and visiting relatives, I’ve had little opportunity to get them set out, and they were not happy. With an hour available, overcast skies, and a prediction of “light rain”, I thought it would be my chance. Apparently, I need to find a new weather forecast!

Just hours after getting them out, our “light rain” turned into thunderstorms, lightening, driving rain, and HAIL! Yep. Lovely. I was finally able to get out this afternoon to assess the damage. My broccoli is looking a bit sad, but it’s still more perky than it was in the pots, so I’m hoping they come through the trauma okay. Now, I’ve got to decide when to put out the other 3 broccoli seedlings.
