I had to check out the Back40 this morning after the tornado warnings and high wind reports last nite not far from here and thankfully all was well. The sugar snap peas were leaning, so I strung them back to the fence posts and was able to pick my FIRST peas of the season.
Luckily my gardens didn't suffer from the additional 1 1/2" of rain we got thru all day yesterday and last nite's winds. In 5 days we reached 4" of rain on the rain gauge. I'm happy I don't have to hand water for at least a week now.
Today the sun is shining and tomorrow we expect the same. We may reach 80F today but low humidity, and cooler tomorrow. I had to get out early to tie up tomatoes and string some of them since they've grown so much with all the rain.
I hope my fellow gardeners did not suffer from the high winds and rain and the tornado watch last nite. I heard several limbs were torn from trees during that blustery time. Maine rarely sees a tornado and when we do its mild, tearing off limbs that might fall on a roof or car but never tearing apart a home or picking up vehicles to scatter along the countryside. For that I am grateful to live in Maine.
