30.5 deg F, badly damaged my best looking squash plants, nipped my tomatoes and corn! :(

Hopefully the plants will bounce back and the cold shock will make the veggies all the sweeter, just have to wait and see! ;)

Didn't seem to harm stuff that didn't seem to be doing anything. (?)

Been praying for a good bit of time before more hits, and hopping for encouraging stories from how others gardens are doing!

I'll trade you,

20 deg up from my low off of your high! Or if you have too much heat exhaustion to make change, I'll make an even swap of the whole thing, my Hubbard squash love hot weather anyway! ;) Which is the way it should be with weather, just trade, nobody ever seems to get what they want! :{D

Looking forward to next years garden already!

Just got my new copy of The Old Farmers Almanac, looks like next years weather will be a repeat of this years, just have to take it with stride!

My potatoes are coming up in my garbage can planters in the greenhouse! :)

It's warm and humid one day

It's warm and humid one day then chilly the next. Been raining off an don seems like forever. The weeds i my garden are literally knee high. It doesn't stay dry or sunny long enough for me to geet in there and put everything to bed. I did pull alot of weeds but with all the rain the weeds are back. I am still getting tomatoes. a few peppers... NEVER got any cukes this year and I have ONE WATERMELON that still seems to be growing. Other than that... I htink I am all done in this year. I have NO idea what gives with the cukes. This is the 2nd year I haven't gotten any.
OHHHH How do you know when to pick CELERY?

Same here, except no rain for a while!

The sunflowers got hurt bad by the cold, but were far enough along that they should still make some seeds for the birds.

Good luck with those cukes, do they bloom?

Second day in a row over 90 here, somewhere around record temps for the time of year hear in MT!
