The wind is blowing,
Hold on Granny!
The trees are bending,
There goes Annie!
The birds are thinking
What was that?
The wind is swirling
Hold on to your hat!
What's the concern?
I beg your pardon,
I'm getting worried.....
Ooops, there goes my garden!

A WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 PM PDT THIS AFTERNOON.
* TIMING: WINDS WILL INCREASE THIS MORNING AND REMAIN STRONG THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON.
* WINDS: WEST 30 TO 40 MPH WITH GUSTS NEAR 50 MPH.
Patio tomatoes and peppers are protected. Bamboo sticks are holding the pots down so they don't blow off.
Larger tomato plants around the patio are shielded from the strong winds (and expected low temperature tonight).
Seedlings pushed up against the house for extra protection.
I just planted these four tomatoes yesterday. So far the shed is protecting them from the wind.
I really should have waited another week to plant this row of peppers. The plants are going to have a rough time of it today.
I think (hope) these tomatoes and peppers will be OK, sheltered by the fence.
A broccoli plant is struggling, flattened by the wind. I've already lost one to cutworm and two more to damping off. I only have two left, including this one, so it may be a broccoli-less year for me. I planted a few seeds directly in the garden as replacements, so let's hope something grows.
