So Friday afternoon, after the last of the storm clouds had passed, I trudged outside into a very muddy back yard dragging just about everything I could come up with to cover a plant. A friend told me milk jugs or even newspaper worked great. I ended up with garbage bags, a tarp, a rubbermaid tub, and some empty pots. Beautiful, right? At this point, all I care about is that it works!
Considering all the plants did just fine last time (right after I put the first four tomato plants in we had a full week of 30 and 40 degree weather), I'm hoping they'll do well again this time for a much shorter cold period (it should be warm again by Sunday).
So here's the deal - I'm new to this whole gardening thing. What are your secrets to protecting your crops from a potential frost?
