MY KIDS TRAMPLED MY GARDEN!!!!!
They ran through it and broke most of my green pepper plants that had peppers coming in and a lot of my cabbage leaves were broke off. They also snapped some of my cherry tomato plants. Do you think there is any chance of getting new pepper and tomato's to grow this year. I removed all the damaged stems and leaves. This is such a shame...I was taking such good care of everything and it always puts a smile on my face in the morning to see everything progressing. :( :( :(

It is still early in the season, so if the main stem and roots are fine, you should still see peppers and tomatoes. Tomatoes grow very fast once the weather gets hot, so don't fret. You will have monsters before you know it. It is also fine to replant now if you think you must replace them. I will not even plant for another couple weeks and my fall frosts will come before yours.

Sorry to hear that, Jacqueline. Yes, still plenty of time. Most of my vegetable seedlings are not even in the real earth yet, mostly due to excessive rain. Shame that it happened, but you can rebound with a few purchases and letting the tomatoes go nuts with growth as things get warmer.

Thank you for eney infomation you can give in help me with this problem....p.s. I dont have a green house (thanks again)}}}}

Michael,

I'm afraid you're out of luck. Avacados are tropical trees and none are hardy below 25F. More at http://www.organicgardening.com/feature/0,7518,s-2-28-714,00.html
