Sure we got the rest of the peppers and picked all the green/ripening tomatoes we could stand but what I was really after were the flowers.
I got only a fraction of what there was- making sure to get the dahlias (oh my! gorgeousness!) and the zinnias got zapped. The children tried to revive them by pouring water on them before the sun came up (those are their footprints scattered about) because they love me (and because I offered them a piece of bacon for doing it!) Still, the zinnias died. Cosmos are bit heartier so I may still get a bouquet or two from them! Oh happy day! A home without flowers is like a sink without water.
