G is for garden. H is for hurricane.

So the aftermath from Irene has us with restored power, but no internet, so I’m posting from my phone. Please forgive any weird formatting..

The veggies I picked before the storm look nice. One of the peppers is even turning red!

I can’t necessarily say the same for the tomato plants outside.

Still have to see what is salvagable- some of the branches are split down the middle..

I found the quote I was talking about here!

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.  The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.”
-C.G. Jung

Goodnight, Irene…

So hurricane prep will have me at the store today and packing up some things as Mom and I will be staying with my grandparents– just in case phone lines go out, we want to make sure they’re ok.

I’ll also be taking the advice of the page linked here to “prepare” my garden: Preparing Garden for Hurricane! : Harvest!

Although there’s nothing I can do for those baby Cherry toms.  I only hope that the storm changes direction and passes on through so they’ll be ok (and the rest of us!)

*Oh, and the post title comes from the Leadbelly (Huddie Ledbetter) song.
