Hail! and water
the hail did quite a bit of damage to the yacon in the top photo...not an inexpensive plant so i am a bit dismayed...however, the stem is intact and the very top, new growth, leaves are as well so we could be okay...the beans in the second photo and the potato in the third had their containers inundated with rainwater from the storm ...they were not the only containers whose drainage was overcome by the storm so i spent some time dumping excess water out...the potato in the fourth photo sustained extensive hail damage as did the potato patch in the ground farther out in the yard...i had hoped the eaves on the south side of the house would have offered some protection since the storm came out of the northwest...the overhang proved ineffective.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
