We went to TN overnight and I left the greenhouse unzipped but it wasn't enough. I had planted the beans and peppers out in the hoop house and I couldn't leave the cover off of it because of the cat. So the peppers got burned up too.
Oh, that IS a bummer! It's the life of a gardener, though, isn't it? Stuff happens, whether extreme temps, summer hail, infestation, or some random burrowing animal that rips everything up just as we're about to pick it. Gardening has its aggravations, that's for sure. We've all been there, I'm sure. Or will be!
I think I'd have to get some new seeds started quickly, and maybe buy some plants at one of the big box stores too, just to have something to look at while the new seeds take off again.
No. I found her a home. This is the shed cat. I got the big bed covered with bird netting today so I can leave the plastic off now. Looks like 3 or 4 of my peppers may survive. I bought a Rutgers tomato at Wal-Mart yesterday and planted it today. I planted a lemon cucumber that I hope will survive. I also planted a "small yellow watermelon". That's all the tag on the seeds said. :) I think I got them in a trade. My herbs are starting to come back out but it looks like I will have to replace the basils and the rosemary. But I feel much better about things today. It's all part of a gardener's life.
