Mother Nature threw us a nasty curve last week, with two nights of frost. It got down to about 30 degrees for both nights. John and I did our best to cover those plants that we could, and for the most part it worked well. I made the mistake of using some landscape cloth to cover a few of the tomato cages, and lesson learned - it doesn't block the cold. Plastic worked very well, and hay worked well too. I lost 4 tomatoes -- but I've already replaced them, so on we go. No use crying over it (as John keeps telling me.) Sigh.....
Tarps over the herb gardens, and these worked great too.
Pots of every type over the pepper plants - most of them were fine, although a few leaves were frost burned.
The red pear tomato has a few little tomatoes on it!
This is the volunteer black cherry in the greenhouse - a few little tomatoes on it too! See the dark shoulders on these little guys? This plant is about 5 foot tall already.
The peas are about to burst out in bloom -- pretty little purple flowers coming.
The climbing Blaze rose is just bursting out everywhere! So pretty.
The saddest thing is the sight of our beautiful Tangerine Cross-vine plants - they really got burned by the frost so bad. The plants will come back but the dying flowers just look awful.
