Here in zone 7b we had an early frost on 10-26-13. Although I placed a light-weight cover over the plants they still suffered some damage to the tops. The bottom of the plants look healthy enough and the peppers are still hanging on. So would it be a good thing to trim the tops of the plants off? It's back to 70 degrees during the day with mild nights in the 50's.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
