Hail and deluge

Yay!  The garden has weathered its first deluge.  Today a very large and foreboding storm cell moved over the area around 3:00 pm.  While those of the last few days primarily brought brief, mild rain and boomers, this one had a distinct feel of “mischief and mayhem.”

Still at work, I requested assistance from the fledgling garden’s Guardians to shield it from hail and high winds, visualizing a clear glass dome over the entire area, including the rest of the yard, and the neighbors.  Upon arrival home two hours later, I was delighted to find all the seedlings and plants intact, especially in light of the storm’s ability to flood streets, dislodge soil in other yards, fry surge protectors and phones, and zap some trees in a short time.
