Sorry to hear this, Mike. We got lucky the other day and missed the frost. Broccoli is doing great and have tomatoes blooming.

Sorry to hear that Mike. It's always a chance you take,you have to try and accept the fact that you may have to replant.
I have no plants in the ground frost will hurt yet.
I did plant 4 lilacs for the wife Monday night, and the frost bit them Tuesday morning.
I'm guessing, they will come back?
Our 8 day forcast shows no nightime temps below high 40's, and that would put us Mid-May.
So I'm planting the plants today.
It's still early so you should still get a nice crop from the garden.

Sorry to hear of the garden losses. No way for that to happen to me because it's been soaking wet all spring, so nothing got out except for broccoli, and it'll withstand decent frosts.
