Youth Update 7-21-11

I stopped by the Garden on Tuesday when it was really, really hot and really, really humid to pick some beans.  I was surprised to find that the evergreen top had been removed from the raised beds.  A couple of posts had been broken off, and some plants were squished, but it already looked better.  Or at least less hopeless.

The bed looks pretty bare. It was mostly empty anyway, but this end held the herbs.

This is what is left of the herbs, although the oregano does still have some green and I found some chives on the other side that may survive.

These tomatoes were under the tree top. The one on the left may not make it, but we are certainly going to give it a chance to recover!

It's hard to see, but this is the tomato cage that was around the previous photo's critically injured tomato. I'm not sure I can get it back into a round shape.

This is the space the eggplants were in. The stems are there, but there are no leaves, flowers or fruit. I don't think they will come back.

The northern evergreen. This is the one I really hope gets chainsawed into a cornstalk or something garden-like.

This is the middle tree. It still has few branches, but I'm pretty sure they will have to be taken down.

The beans managed to stay out from under any trees and they look great!

I didn’t get the beans.  I was too sweaty from moving the few things I did in that 115 degree heat index.

It sounds like the cleanup of the brush at the Gardens will be completed by Monday or so.  I can’t wait to see what it looks like!

Dig it!

    These pics are so sad to look at.
    It just breaks my heart to think of all the time and talent too that went into what was to be such a beautiful garden.
    Also Eileen, glad your feeling better, and you got cooled off!
