We had lots of rain this spring so plants were surviving. Of course after this kind of temperatures we knew that as soon as the rain comes we will have storms.
The storm came on Thursday. Temperatures dropped to 15°C and strong wind was mixed with hail the size of peas. We can be happy that hail was really small and that it didn't last long so there was small damage. The only thing that got holes was my Canna lily. But it's leaves are go gentle that they get damaged from watering so I wasn't too upset about it.
In the garden there was no visible damage from hail but wind did some damage.
My potatoes are all rolled on the ground. I'm hoping they will get back up by themselves.
Some of my tomatoes weren't so lucky. All of them were rolled down. I tied them all up before the storm but it didn't help.
My Viva Italia tomatoes weren't only rolled down. Most of them have broken branches. The worst thing is that they already had little tomatoes on them.
Temperatures made my lettuce to produce flower stalks so I had to start harvesting them. I harvested 2 Endive and one Nansen lettuce head. I'm happy with their size. This is a 10l bowl.
The one thing that I'm not happy with is my peas. The harvests are really really poor. I sown 1 kilo of peas and by the way things are looking right now I'll be happy if I manage to harvest 2 kilos of peas.

My Peonny poppies are blooming
And Nero loves them too
Chamomile has it's first flowers. I'm surprised it is growing so well with all the weather changes we are having this year.
First Cosmos fizzy flower
Iberis has spreaded all around my garden. It looks great coloring by the green beds.
My Ipomea wall is progressing and giving me first pretty flowers. I was hoping to get purple and blue flowers but instead I got pale pink ones. I'll see what colors I'll get when the rest of Ipomea plants start blooming.
