Oh, No! Our Beautiful Garden!

Yesterday, before the storm, we had the best little garden we’ve ever had! Beautiful straight stalks of corn just starting to tassel, large green heirloom tomatoes just on the verge of turning red, the pole beans lacing their way up to the sky and hugging the poles that held them up, and gorgeously yellow gigantic pumpkins, some weighing in at over 50 pounds already! This morning, we found the corn in utter disarray, lying every which way on the ground. The pumpkins had been dug up by their stalks in places, with their big leaves drooping tenuously overtop. The tomatoes and their cages were upturned and lying on the ground. What a difference a day makes! So, we have spent today repairing the damage as best we can, propping up the corn piece by piece, hoping that it will take firm root once again, carefully righting all the tomatoes so that we didn’t lose the tomatoes that we have waited so long for, straightening the pumpkins in order to preserve as many of our giant babies as possible. Perhaps tomorrow things will look a little more right in our little garden.
