Tuesday morning we woke up to 40 degree weather.  For our area that is cold.
Usually we plant our spring garden by Feb 1, which I did.  Most of the stuff
is doing fine, but my bush beans are goners, they were frost bit and look
dead, though the stems are still green.  Think they will come back?

George, Stories like yours is why we went with a local contractor for our
kitchen.  They were a couple hundred more than the HD price, but well worth
it.  Our biggest problem was with the plumber, who broke his foot and could
not work for 3 weeks at the tail end of the job - so there was a whole
kitchen, but no water nor drainage.
