The poor little plants got some moisture, but it's just not the same as rain. And needless to say, I focused on the most important plants to me.So the corn and tomatoes fared the best.
The broccoli never developed a big head , the Zucchini, , usually the most prolific plants died. I am still waiting for the Brussel sprouts to get little sprouts. The Kale and Collards are tall and green, bless their little hearts. They have been the most neglected and blessed me still with beautiful plants.
