Garden Zapped by the Cold
Most of my spring garden was killed by the cold Tuesday night & Wednesday morning. I lost 50 tomatoes, 40 squash, and 30 peppers.
The biggest loss to me was the tomatoes because I had several unique varieties that I had collected over the last two months (such as Indigo Rose, Green Zebra, Red Brandywine, Garden Peach, Black Krim, etc). I also had the more common varieties (Beefsteak, Better Boy, Big Boy, Roma, Cherry, etc). It's all gone.
The squash and pepper will be easy to replace. Not so with the tomatoes.
My red & white potatoes got hit by the frost but will survive. The garlic and onion are still thriving.
Guess I will RE-plant next week.
Thanks Al Gore!
