Cover that box with visqueen, slap a space heater and a fan in there, and you'll have a decent outdoor cold-frame mini-greenhouse next year.  :)

They'll probably bounce back as long as they didn't get too heavy of a frost.  I have several "accidental" over-wintered plants that saw a great deal of weather in the 30s this winter.  I was expecting them to die during the winter, but they're coming along OK now.


But the damaged leaves will probably all drop, and the plant will need to grow new ones.  So it's definitely a setback.


Your plants would have been further along if you'd have kept them out of these temperatures.

I sure wish it would quit raining.



The weather forecast looks really good for the next week.  You may get your wish if the forecast holds up.

Based on my experience, it won't kill them, but it might slow them down for a few days.


All-in-all, it's probably not the worst thing that could happen.

Weird, those dropped leaves look pretty healthy.


When I have leaf drop, the leaves usually already look like crap.  The only time I've had good leaves drop is after a freeze (at the end of the season).
