Thankfully, here at Regal-Hill we didn’t get the hail that some people in the area got last week. When we learned that there could be hail with the thunderstorm we found empty pails, plastic ice cream containers and whatever we could find, and covered any plants that were big enough to be damaged by hail. Being there was no way to cover the peas, since they have brush for them to trail on, we concentrated on covering the broccoli and tomato plants. At least now if hail is predicted again, we are ready with things to cover plants with. The plants had grown considerably since they were planted so they needed bigger containers to cover them.
