Freaking Hail!!!!

kclostMay 11, 2014

4+ months of growing indoors, and after one week outside hail nearly destroys all my plants. I think they will all make it but will have to basically start over. I'm glad I am not a farmer.

They aren't destroyed. They are well established and will magically re-grow right before your eyes. Snip off broken branches and stake up the ones that are down. Then stand back!

Sorry man but yes, DMForcier is right.
I'm so glad we don't get large hail out here but we get other things like extreme heat and droughts.

Have to agree with DMF. No need to start over. I've seen pics of before and after hailstorm and recovery and pepper plants are troopers!

I've had hail do a number on my plants several times in years past, as everyone says, they bounce back faster than you'd think.

2 years ago, it hailed twice in a few weeks. My plants looked horrible. I was ready to give up. 2 or 3 weeks later, it was hard to tell anything had ever happened. Hang in there. They bounce back quick.
