what do i do with snowed on vegetables?

dcleaver47(zone 10)December 18, 2003

it snowed before i could protect the last of my celery, parsley, leeks, swiss chard and carrots. the snow's melted now, and most of the plants look to be alive. the celery looks pretty terrible, but it's still alive.

so what do i do with the plants now? are they still edible? or should i just dig them up and throw them out?

thanks in advance.

They should still be perfectly edible. In fact, the flavors some vegetables (especially leeks, kale, and brussels sprouts) are improved by a little frost.
