vegetable starts and wind damage

I am just getting back to vegetable gardening after many years. I planted my starts (from a store) this year when it was windy. I thought about fashioning some kind of protection but just hoped for the best. While they did survive the plants seem stunted. Does anyone else have this problem and what do you do to combat your wind problems? Thanks
