Default Frost 6-11-18

Yes here in the Northern Rocky Mountains it does freeze in June. So, my potato tops got frozen and look dead this afternoon, the roots and starter potato look fine. Any chance these will revive or do I just replant?

I have had potatoes grow back after a frost. They may come back quicker than if you plant new ones which may take 4 weeks to show some leaves.

Wow sorry to hear that! I'd give them a week or so, if only the tips were frost bit you should be ok.
I'll be digging fingerlings in a few weeks... barring we don't have a baseball sized hailstorm...
It's been a really "weird" season.

I think the below ground parts will re-sprout quickly. It has been a weird weather year! Tomatoes OK?
