After inspecting the garden I see no harm done.  I've watered everything 
well today as it looks to be as cold tonight.

I too wish the summer to start over for the garden.  First we had excessive 
heat at the beginning of April then cool and wet May and now very little 
rain since the beginning of June.  My plants freaked out by the early heat 
have sulked until the last week or so and now they are growing we are 
having frosts!  Makes you just want to throw in the towel!
