Wind damage

We had a slight wind storm and some of my vegetable transpants and newly grown seedlings are damaged. Is there anything I can do to help the garden I am growing sqaush, leaf lettuce, bellppers, collard greens and brocoli.

Once the wind damage has happened, there's little to do other than prevent further damage or stress to the plants. Keep the watered uniformly and protect them from additional strong winds. Cloches or floating row covers may provide the protection that your plants need.
