Blankets over Plants

The cold front forecast came true and so did my anticipation of their possible error margin.  I’m glad that little ‘woman’s intuition’ gnawed at me to cover my warmth-loving young plants that is in the ground. The backyard looked a bit like Salem’s Lot when it got to twilight.

had to blanket the plants while still sunny

 

Brrrr ....

Brrrr ….

… and this morning *whamo!* it was below freezing.

It’s been a good “warm winter” so far but a bit of chill will do my cabbages & collard greens some good (I think) so I shouldn’t complain.  *bite tongue*

I guess I’ll just have to put up with Mother Nature’s mood and adapt to temperate food growing, permaculture style.
