This wind is playing havoc with my beloved tomato plants. I have 6 in a raised garden bed and they are all in cages. Every time I go out to inspect the damage I’m finding more broken / bent branches. I have been standing them up straight again and trying to brace the cage, but they just look a mess now. Should I keep interfering? Or just wait until the wind dies down and assess and fix any damage then?
I was so- so proud of making a whole, beautiful bowl of fresh,cut garden veg.until I realized that I thoughtlessly dumped some store bought oil and vinegar dressing on it...dash!!!..*not* so mindful.

Hi Tim,

I saw your post mentioning 3 different colors of finger limes, I would love to read/see an update to get a feel of what to expect from mine.

Happy Gardening !

Hi Mark,
so far the upgrade looks nicer, but have a question ....
I wanted to add a video clip to media, but youtube is not a choice and I can't figure out how to include an .mp4 file from my hard drive either ... is this able to be done ?

I do take still pics, but vids are more compelling imo

thanks,
P J the Dirt Diva
