The weatherman had mentioned the possibility of a storm, but the sky was clear. I went out to put some potting soil in some new pots, it got windy, it got cloudy, it started to rain, then rain sideways, then it started to HAIL! Marble sized hail balls pounding everything. The weatherman said he hadn't seen such a widespread hail storm in years! I had been disappointed that my peas, carrots and radishes hadn't come up. But after that storm, I was really happy that not only had they not come up, but that I had put row cover over them. Spring is such a wonderful, surprising time of year!
