We got a light frost here last night. My tomatoes and peppers were setting outside (I've not gotten where I can plant yet) and on a last minute thought, I put them in the garage. When I looked outside this morning, I was sure glad I did. I think this next week, it's looking better though Very Happy .

We have a frost warning tonight too. Should I cover everything? Or just my tomatoes? I have bush beans, pole beans, green peppers, jalepino peppers, squash, okra, cukes, onions and cabbage planted along with my maters.

I about freaked this morning when I let the cat out! It was so cold. I went and talked to the plants for alittle while. Tried to warm them up Wink

Cover everything, specifically your warm weather crops. You can cover with a sheet or cut off soda bottles, just do not forget to uncover your garden after the danger has passed. Good Luck.

Cover it all. You don't want to risk any work you've done due to laziness. That would just be a shame.

Here's a link to the map in case some others are wondering if they are included in frost potential...
