Also, I might add that chicken manure is the "hottest" and most short-lived, and horse manure runs a good 2nd place for worst (too hot and short
lived) manures. Use horse and chicken manure to 'cure' your compost pile - turn, turn, and turn (monthly) and don't use it for a year. Those "hot"
maures will help break down other organic materials into some good compost for you.
Cow manure - very good, sheep and goat comes next, horse comes next and poultry manures are last place.
Your garden wasn't zapped by the hot manures though - we both agree with Perdue. Heat got it.
You have had "green tomatoe jelly and green tomatoe relish" right? Also, slice and fry green tomatoes like eggplant. So, all is not lost.
