May 30, 2015 4 comments Lyra March 23, 2023 - 9:38 am The tops of all my tomato and pepper plants also died in this freeze, but it looks like my mulch saved the roots from freezing. I pruned off the dead tops, and now all the peppers and tomatoes are sprouting new leaves and pushing back up out of the ground. Should I yank them up and get new transplants? Or is it possible they can grow back and set fruit? Reply David The Good March 23, 2023 - 11:52 am If they’re pushing new leaves, they should be fine. Reply Gail March 23, 2023 - 10:37 am We have similar weather patterns in South Jersey. None of the farmers will even try to grow peas because they poke along for weeks without producing and then, suddenly, it’s 90 every day and they up and die (the peas- not the farmers). We play a similar game in the fall. There is usually one rogue frost in early autumn, but if we navigate that successfully, we have three to four more weeks of good growing weather. One year one of the farm stands had Jersey Fresh tomatoes and Christmas trees at the same time! Reply David The Good March 23, 2023 - 11:52 am That makes a lot of sense. Peas aren’t great here, either. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. You can also subscribe without commenting.
