My garden had happily been in the garden since about 3/15 (4/1 for the cucumbers) and everything was coming along nicely. Had flower buds on the pumpkins, winter and yellow squash and tomatoes. Last night there was frost and my pumpkins are in bad shape (60% of each plant is damaged), winter squash have visibly frost burnt leafs (25% of the plant) and the rest have only slight damage around the edges that isn't very apparent unless looking closely.
What is the best strategy going forward? Should I pull everything up and start over? Cut off the damaged areas? or do nothing and wait and see how they recover? Are the ones without apparent damaged still going to have a tough time recovering?
I still have some backup tomato seedlings but they are somewhat root-bound and kind of neglected since the frost kind of snuck up out of a nice forecast and I didn't expect to use them.
