Angry Storm Damage!

Lightning, hail, strong wind, I even saw a funnel cloud trying to form but then it dissipated. I have about 50' of grean beans planted, 30' of cucumbers and a few small beds of peas and carrots. Most of it was washed away, and I can barley see where the rows were.

When I would find seeds (usually the grean bean seeds) I would put them back where I thought they were. The biggest thing is my greenhouse! I might be able to get one more spring out of it (its only 3yrs old) if I put some kind of tape over the tears. Anyway I just hope everything comes up.

In this picture you can see the garden bed, and all the washed away soil, under the tarps are the carrots. I dont want to do anything until the seeds come up.

And this in red is where the walkways were:

I put the tent there 2 days before the storm hit, it was there to scare off the deer and to sleep in if I felt like it.

The greenhouse damage:
