I think my plants are dead!

We had a really hard rain ALL day yesterday and bunch if my plants are either laying on the ground or there stems are snapped! :( My biggest little shop of horrors looking zucchini's stem snapped and a couple of bean plants stems snapped. *sniffle* There is probably nothing I can do for them, but the other plants that are laying on the ground...is there anything I can do for them? Still no sun today and it's sprinkling on and off. Is there any hope for them?

There is hope. I had a really bad storm a few weeks ago and it done a lot of damage. Most of it has recovered.

There is still enough time to direct seed both zucchini and beans for a back-up if they don't recover.

I had a lot of hail damage - amazing how the eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes came back.

Be very gentle with them, and see who comes back.

You might want to try propping the ones laying over up if you can.
