I would suggest don't worry about what you cannot change. The weather you report is not bad at all, the rain will be good for them. Very Happy Your wee plants will bounce back when fair weather returns. Very Happy

+1!

Be careful Buttaflie. Excitement and learning new things can quickly turn in to micromanagemet. It's a good problem to have.....the excitement. We all struggle to squelch the micromanaging, though. Very Happy

I'm just glad my garden (such as it is so far) survived the storm last evening. Hail did nick off a couple of leaves (1 of 2 leaves remaining on a couple of plants) but other than that everything seems okay. That's good considering the storm. We had such violent winds that many trees came down or snapped throughout our small town, plus we had very strong rain and hail. Temperature was 40 this morning and is supposed to be 36 tomorrow morning. I hate to see what the hurricane season will be like considering the storms that have been happening lately.

I must say though that I didn't even think about my garden during the storm. My thoughts were about our daughter and 3 grandchildren who had gone to play in the park. They did make it home safely, detouring around downed trees and limbs.

Buttaflie, I think your garden will be fine since it didn't get down in the 30's. The plants may grow a little slower for now but when it warms up their growth will pick up speed.

It got down to 43* last night. This may slow my tomatos and peppers downs some. I just put them out last weekend. Cukes too. But my 2 remaining eggplants still only had 4 leaves so I decided to keep them in the house a bit longer. Glad I did.

After checking my garden, it looks like I'll be doing some re-planting after Mother's Day. That's when we're supposed to plant around here anyway. I should have listened - especially since I didn't have any protective domes built yet. Bummer. At least I didn't transplant any of my pepper or tomato plants yet. Lost cucumbers, probably summer squash, and I don't know about the winter squash yet. It "might" have survived.

I covered melons, sprouted okra, peppers and summer squash. Everything looks great today. Sprouted carrots and beets did fine. We get extremes here in the Mountains of Western NC.

It got down to 27 one day out here. Everything on my end made it.

I covered my potatoes, but not very well. They are mostly fine with just a few frost damaged leaves here and there.
