After the storm

We had lots of wind and high tides from hurricane Sandy, along with rain. As always, the wind is my worst enemy in the vegetable garden.

The fall vegetables with thick, waxy leaves, like kale and broccoli, came through well. Although the huge broccoli plants did blow over on their sides, I think they will be fine. The fennel, as you can see, was unscathed!

The story is different for the lone squash plant, with it's big tender leaves. It is a mess. With almost no time before frost, it is unlikely to produce much regrowth.
