My Sugar Snap pea plants are now about 5 feet tall. But with this very unusually hot weather (95+ degrees with temps in the garden reaching at least l15 degrees), it has fried the very top main leader of the plants. My question is: even if the top main leader is dead, will the plants produce side shoots and thus still produce a crop? Or should I just start over? Thank You

If the high heat does not persist, the plant will produce side shoots. But if the heat continues and you see the whole plant start to yellow, then the plant is lost and you should start over when the temperatures start to cool off again.
