These little plants were my 'Sex without strings' yellow bush beans. My 'Kentucky Wonder' and 'Borlotti' are also victims of the frost.
This plant was my 'Greenskin' zucchini. My 'Gold Rush' yellow zucchini is also affected.
The plant below is one of three 'Butternut' pumpkins all destroyed.
My potatoes have also been nipped, but only lightly. I am hoping they may survive...does anyone have experience with their potatoes being nipped like this?
Only 2 of the 8 tomatoes I have ion the ground seem to have perished - both 'Green Grape'. Luckily I have another 'Green Grape' seedling I can pop in to replace these two.
This is terribly disappointing but I guess to be expected. This is the first winter and spring we have had at Highfield and it is very difficult to know when the last frost might occur with no history to back me. I have also been enthusiastic to get crops in and going so that some produce before the worst of the summer heat.
Oh well, I will have to start again with some of these crops. Unfortunately I have put in all the 'Sex without strings' and 'Kentucky Wonder' bean seeds.... I might have to rely on varieties commonly available from the nursery so I can get going again quickly.
A late frost is one thing, but an early fire is completely another thing. My little frost 'disaster' is certainly unimportant. Stay safe people in the affected areas.
How is spring treating your crops? Any little frost nips?
