Protect your Plants

It is going to be COLD tonight – below freezing cold.  We all need to protect our plants – water the roots (not the leaves) well and then cover with a protective tarp, plastic sheet, frost cover, etc.  I am not worried about my pansies.  The most that will happen is that a few flowers may fall off – but more buds will follow.  I am mostly worried about my newly planted cold crops, especially the tiny ones that sprouted from seed.  I will definitely cover them.

I think I will bring my lettuce hanging baskets inside – I will trim them at the same time and enjoy a fresh salad.  🙂
