So I Killed My Veggies

Two Thursdays ago I posted on how well me veggie seedlings were doing. The cucumber and zucchini plants were thriving and taking over my table. That same day, I brought the seedlings out onto the deck for some fresh air and sunlight. It was a beautiful day. Fast forward to Friday morning. I come downstairs in the morning and realize my kitchen table is missing something. My veggie plants!!! Sure enough, I look out onto the deck and there they are. I forgot to bring them in. They initially didn't look too good, but I kept watering them and caring for them in hopes that by some miracle I could revive them. But now I think it is safe to say that they are pretty much all dead.

The only seedlings that survived are the peppers (the right 4 columns). Hopefully I can keep those going and plant them outside soon. I'm so bummed. My first attempt at a veggie garden has already gone down in flames. I think I am going to pick up some more cucumber and zucchini seeds and just plant them directly outside once there is no more overnight frost. Maybe that will go better.


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry for you, after all that time and effort.

    It's possible that they've just gotten shocked, and that they'll recover. Did you have frost that night?

  2. hold on to them still. Our peppers and tomato went through a bad week but they came back and are looking good.

  3. Oh man. Welcome to my world. We tried to plant a garden last year and, sadly, it didn't go so well. Hopefully you can save them.

  4. I'm sorry to hear that. I planted everything straight in the ground this year, we will see what works.
