    [​IMG] Lordy...I would be devastated after all the work I've put into my garden. That surprises me that it drops THAT low in your area this late in the year...

    I sure feel for you! Seems like spring/summer is never coming and we have gone right back to fall/winter [​IMG]

    This past weekend - it snowed all weekend, nothing stuck but still cold, windy and snow. [​IMG]

    My garden has not even started cause we have not come out of freezing nights yet - I break ice off of waters every morning. [​IMG]

    garden update:
    it's now 35 degrees warmer in less than 10 hours, supposed to go up another 5-7 degrees. seriously, from 29-82 in the same day? [​IMG]

    doesn't look like a total loss after all but still not good...

    Tomatoes - 9 dead, 7 might make it
    Peppers - 6 dead, 2 struggling
    Cucumbers - all lost;
    Squash - 2 dead, 5 doing fair;
    ground crops and greens seem fine but shocked.
    beans hadn't sprouted yet.

    Wow - you all have some cold nights. I am in Alaska and it is nice and warm (40 - 50) at night here! [​IMG]

    I always plant on May 15th and sometimes loose a plant or two to frost. This year I lost 2 marigolds, which is not bad considering I planted 500 - 600 plants.
