    That's terrible! I'm so sorry, I know how much work went into that garden, and the plants were so beautiful.

    I am so sorry! Sad. My 2 brothers live in Norman and they had quite a lot of damage. And they may come back out of it. As Denise said. we have a long growing season ahead yet. Beware, they are predicting severe weather again on Monday & Tuesday.

    Huge Hugs

    Why not hedge your bets? Start some seeds in little pots, but meanwhile give these damaged plants a week or so to see if any of them will start to recover. There roots should still be good, and maybe the "heavy pruning" will spur them on.

    I sure feel sorry knowing how much work you must have put in only to have this happen.

    I believe you had it much worse than here. I took a picture off the back porch when the hail slowed down:

    wow...I have seen storm damage of a garden...but nothing like the destruction your garden has had...you probably can replant...and hope you will...and hope that the rest of your summer is storm free.

    That is so sad. We have had some storms come through here and my poor tomato plants look like leaning towers.
    My zucchini isn't coming up like it normally does and my cantaloupe aren't either. Something is eating my poor little corn that is coming up. Something was digging up my onion sets and just sitting them by the rows not eating on them I just stuck them back in the dirt and they are doing well now. We just had another storm come through this morning and I am scared to look at my garden.

    Oh no! Can you replant something that can be ready for harvesting in the fall like brocolli, pumpkins or cabbage?

    What a drag but there is still time to plant a few things. Just remember how delicious your fresh garden veggies are.
