In Retrospect…

I don’t think I would have done much different to prepare the demonstration garden for the weather over the past weekend. (I do wish I’d known we were going to get so much ice. It was also frustrating to watch the overnight low temperatures get constantly downgraded. The lows didn’t affect anything in the demo garden that much, but I know that people with fruit trees had to be cringing! )

After a cursory check this morning, all the young seedlings appear to be in good health. The strawberries are also fine. I fully expected the brussels sprouts to be done for after this, but they appear to have come through the storms better than I expected. We’ll see how they do. I have some cauliflower and broccoli in reserve if needed.

The blackberries, currants, and gooseberries that had started leafing out will lose their leaves, but then be fine as they leaf out again.
