Wind blown...

A giant wind announced itself unexpectedly with swiftly moving dark clouds... gosh, I thought it was going to blow me away!

Sadly, I had just planted a whole 4x4 bed with Wando Peas (bush variety). At least one of my squares a good amount of soil... and the pea seed... blown away.

I was going to plant my bush beans today... well... I'll wait a bit.
Pryor Mountains in the background.
I went back to check my precious 3 4x4 beds filled with precious Mel's Mix... and each bed had lost a lot of soil! So, I covered 2 beds with clear plastic and the last one with a tarp (ran out of plastic). I feel better now.


  1. Hi Peg! Sigh... yes... sad...

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! I'll keep up with yours as well!

    I'm sorry to hear about your peas. The bush beans should do very well. They did very well for us last year. Unfortunately, this year, cutworms got to them :-(

    Good luck!

  3. Oh NO DP Nguyen! I've seen some SFGers cut straws to put around the stems of their plants so the cutworms can't get them.

  4. Oh gosh! Did you wet it down good, after it was put into the boxes? That must have been some kind of strong wind!

  5. Hi EG,

    I probably could have wet them down more... but the wind is REALLY blowing here... and very gusty.


I *LOVE* your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
