Heavy overnight rain wreaked havoc with my young plants last night.
Bean plants that hadn’t latched onto any supports yet were beaten down to the ground.
Young eggplant plants were similarly flattened.
Worst of all, my Red Lady papaya tree lost the most matured flower!
My immediate reaction on seeing them was to get the plants upright, which is why they don’t look so bad in the photos that I took in the afternoon. They really were flattened when I first saw them, and some, like the winged bean plant, still couldn’t hold themselves upright by the afternoon. We are so not pleased.
