A Late Freeze

Sprouting... something

Karen and Dave were out of town for the latest freeze, but I did call Karen to see what I needed to do to protect in the garden.

I was instructed to put the empty ice cream buckets in the garage over the eggplants and the tomatoes, the most tender of all the garden. There were four of each.

I now know that tomato plants can make it through a light little freeze here, that I can't tell tomato leaves from broccoli leaves and that broccoli isn't hurt by an ice cream bucket, even when it's hard to fit!
