Preparing the garden for 28 degrees on Monday
The first cold spell for the fall is arriving on Monday in my area, and I would like to get some input from everyone, so that my plants are protected. Some things that I know are gonna be ok are:
Broccoli, cabbage, collards, and carrots.
It's the other things I don't know about....
I know that the cowpeas are toast if not protected, but some other varieties of concern are:
Lettuce, sugar snap peas, turnip salad, potatoes.
I intend on using some of the plastic drop cloth that painters use, to keep the frost from getting the plants. This should be ok, right?
Feel free to give any input at all, because i've never dealt with this before, and I want to do this right.
