Oh, Irene.

by - August 27, 2011

I just walked outside in the evening light from the low hanging pink clouds swirling past as Irene moves northward. Everything is blown in the northwest direction. The corn is down, the okra are bending, and the tomatoes bushes have grown heavy on the stakes. There is some flooding in the squash and bean tunnel. However, the newly sown beds remained intact with the straw shielding the seeds from wind and rain. We lost power several times today in the neighborhood, but it's back on now. Tomorrow I plant some greens!
