Damn you, frost!

My tomato plants did not make it. *Cry*

I grew them from seeds! I was so happy that they all came up. There were almost TOO many tomato plants. I was going to give some to the neighbors, give some to friends... After I planted them in the garden a rabbit got in and munched on about half of them, but I had planted lots of them so it was still okay. However, The recent overnight frost seems to have done them in.

Lesson learned: Next year have stuff to cover the plant babies, and pay attention to frost advisories.

The good news is that the plants at Jung's look much heartier than my babies did, and are actually pretty cheap.

Next year maybe I'll just not start my own seedlings. It's just too heartbreaking.
