Our field continues to recover
from the hail storm we had two weeks ago. It appears that a couple
more trifoliolate leaves have been added.
Plants in the row are making
progress. New leaves continue to form in the axils of the lower
leaves and at the growing point, if it wasn’t damaged.
Here’s the first plant we’ve
been watching. You can see the new leaves developing in the axils of
the lower leaves. It will be a while before this plant gets much
taller. These lower leaves will eventually become branches and they
will grow upright.
This is the second plant we’ve
been watching. Its growing point wasn’t damaged so it continues to
add new leaves from the growing point at the top of the plant. This
plant is at the V6 stage. It won’t be long before I won’t be
able to get the whole plant in the picture!
