So this afternoon I found myself lugging out miscellaneous pots and things to try to cover my little garden seedlings and other delicate plants in hopes to protect them from the possible frost tonight. I must also point out that by the time I remembered that there was a frost warning tonight I had already donned on the fleece pajama pants and baggy pj sweater complete with pink fuzzy socks - so any neighbor who caught a glimpse of me from over the fence got an eye full. :)
(wow, my garden bed looks really dry - I thought it was supposed to rain yesterday)
Anyways, how do you decide which plants get covered and which ones don't? I mean - I can't possibly cover ALL my plants. So I chose to cover the little pea and cucumber seedlings that sprung up the last couple of days in my garden, one of the newer plants that popped up around the flower beds, one of my new rhubarb plants (the rest are pretty much already dead) and my lettuce in various containers (I brought in the ones I could and covered the rest with a towel).
But what does a seasoned gardener do to heed a frost warning? I am new to this so knowing my luck I am doing it all wrong!
