Hard Freeze kills watermelons - Sunfowers survive!

Last night was a real hard freeze. Not sure what the official temp was, but when I went to water the birds this morning, the water in the hose was frozen solid!

The watermelon vines were totally wiped out. Too bad too, these were my "longstanding" vines, planted last spring!

The beets appear to have handled the freeze just fine, along with the volunteer sunflower!

Yeah, Christmas sunflowers, only in Arizona!
