All is not lost—or so itAll is not lost—or so it seems. You don't indicate how long the fresh manure was on/near your plants. Or, depending on where you are, how mature the plants are at this point in the season. Assuming that the manure was not on long enough to burn the plants (or rain or hand watering was not sufficient to cause the manure's "hot" juices, if you will, to penetrate the soil and burn the plants' roots, AND the plants have a way to go before picking (say, a couple of months since it's only June)...seems like a lot, huh?...it should be ok to eat them. As for the manure you removed, you didn't discard it, did you? Because it can be the base of a magical compost pile. Good luck! And remember, every garden, every year is an experiment of some sort.
