Hello, yesterday we had a 97 degree day with high winds. I happened to leave my vegetable seedlings outside. I watered them that morning and when I returned home I found that the leaves on the tomatoes and peppers had developed wind burn. It was not too extensive but the edges of some of the leaves browned up and crumbled. Will they be alright? Thanks! -Cole

As long as the leaves are still mostly green they will continue to nourish the plant so don't prune them off. I think your plants will recover and you should see healthy new growth emerging soon. As the affected leaves die, cut them off the plants. Good luck with your vegetables!
