A few of the tomatoes suffered some damage, each losing several branches with fruit. It wasn't nearly as bad as last year, when the hail was larger, and punched holes in leaves, and tattered pepper plants.
Sadness? Well, nothing is sadder in the garden than late summer dying back. I pulled the rest of my pole and bush beans. There were quite a few pods on the pole beans, but they were empty. They pods grew to a few inches long, with not a single bean inside!

On a positive note, the registration information came for November's Winter Dreams/Summer Gardens symposium! More about that later... so many session choices. "Caneberries in the Backyard" or "Create a Rock Garden?" Would I benefit more from "Tree Care: The Necessary Skills" or "Soil Identification: What Do I Do with It?"
