We cover our vegetables ( tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and peppers) last night to shield them from frost. I am afraid we covered them too early in the day and destroyed some of them. They are all wilted, some are dark and some are yellow. Any tips?

Wait a week to ten days to see if they recover at all. If not, you may need to replant.

Another Indiana gardener posted it was a record low, it may have been just too cold, not your fault..
Plant it and they will come.

Water them. Well hydrated plants can handle cold much better. Before frost, make sure your plants are well watered.
