    So sorry this happened to you. We didn't plant this year, or I would try to share some plants with you. Just easier now a days to go to the farmers market here in town.

    We garden too, so I know your disappointment. Our garden is still in baby stages - waiting for our weather to warm - very late this year. Still snow in the mountains we see from our land. I hope you can still reap something from the mess.

    I think you would have time to replant. Your growing season is longer there.

    Oh, how horrible! Just a thought ... plants are so resilient. It looks like they might have a little life left in them. Why not let them recover?

    Oh my goodness. So sorry. The weather this year has just been so destructive. We lost alot of hay due to straight line winds this year too.

    I think you may have some luck with them if the weather stays OK for you - give it a try before digging in. All the best.

    This is sad to see, and I am so sorry it happened, but I would plant again now! You obviously love to garden, so don't let the storm defeat you. It is not too late to plant some things, and maybe it would lift your spirits. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

    Is that hail damage or wind, or a combination of elements? Looks like a hoard of locusts came through. I feel for you. It is so sad to have such beautiful planting results and see them destroyed in a blink of an eye.

    I'm sure it broke your heart not being able to stop the weather. Was that hail that did that? We had a hail storm in CO when I lived there, that shredded all the leaves off the trees and left everything else looking like the aftermath of your garden. I'd say since your garden gives you pleasure - replant!

    Gardening tries the soul sometimes. Your garden picture looks like mine after the woodchuck broke in. He and his gang rampaged the over the tomatoes, chewed all the lettuce to stumps, are the beans to the ground, trashed the spinich and trampled my peas. They came and went at will, dug big holes right in the asparagus bed. I can laugh now but I sure cried then.

    Here's a quote which may make you laugh, I hope
    "Old Chinese Proverb: If you want to be happy for an hour, get drunk; if you want to be happy for three days, take a wife; if you want to be happy for a week, kill your pig and eat it; but if you want to be happy for a lifetime, become a gardener!"

    So sorry. A microburst went up our street a week ago and did just about the same thing. I thought I'd lost all the tomato and squash but, even though the tomato's were broken off, new growth is coming from them and hopefully will produce fruit.

    So sorry, your garden was doing beautifully! I agree with many others the plants still have their root systems and that is a lot of the battle, they may well come back. Even if they don't I think planting again would get rid of the disappointment. Best of luck!

    That is so sad! Still not too late for some things to be replanted. If you do, hopefully no more bad storms!
