Beaten and blue

The gale force winds here at the coast last weekend gave my hot pepper, tomato, and basil plants a real beating. They look weak and pitiful. New leaves are coming out though, and they will be fine before long.

The biggest news in the garden is how well the blueberry plants are responding to the long, cold winter. Each of the three plants (and three varieties) is bursting with berries! Funny how weather that really knocks one fruit back (I lost all of my early figs to the last late freeze) seems to give another a boost.
