I was looking forward to yesterday’s storm, as my plants (and I), needed a little reprieve from the heat. It started rolling into Greenpoint around 3pm, and I moved some of the smaller plants with lighter pots inside for protection. Those winds were fierce!
The storm went on for a few hours, with shocking claps of thunder and loud bursts of lightning. Henry the cat, the brave little that dude he is, sat watch on the kitchen table.
A glimmer of sunshine arrive around 6pm, and it remained calm for the rest of the evening.
I went outside to check on the plans I thought were tough enough to handle it.
I think I have my work cut out for me this weekend.
In other pathetic news. My summer squashes are not doing so well. Any advice?
Leave your condolences in the comments.
