What Remains

After yesterday's storms, most of our edible garden is completely gone. Without too much notice, the hail, rain and strong winds shredded, bruised and damaged just about everything we grow. Our garden is a hobby. It's not for commercial production. It's part of our lifestyle to create more than just beautiful landscape designs but understand and appreciate everything that relates to sustainability including agriculture and our food source. This leads me to our local farm friends. Some fared the weather, they dodged the storm. But for those within our own town, it was simply devastating. As one farm friend said who was hit hard, "It's numbing." Why? Because August is a farmer's turning point. This signals the true start of harvest season. With most of the summer maintenance done (i.e, pruning, sprays) this is when your produce should turn to gold. But as this Dahlia and sunset remind us, we keep moving forward. The sun is shining this morning and what remains will move on. 
This Dahlia matches the sunset that came after yesterday's storms.

And a few hail pics that landed on our doorsteps, which is always the worst enemy of a grower. 
Hail everywhere...
of different shapes

and sizes...
