It didn't get quite as cold and frosty here as they predicted, so that's good! I only covered a couple of little new plants with clay pots at sunset, but took my chances with the rest. Everything looked okay this morning, so I guess it's better to overreact in this case! :)
I have a few nipped leaves on the hostas. I closed up the lids on my winter sowing sprouts, but everything else seems okay. I did bring in a big fern, but it is going back out tomorrow. I normally don't put out tenders until May 1, jumped the gun a little this year with my veggie garden. Close call!
The frost never got to us. The lake is near 60 degrees and I think it heated up the region around the lake.
I use those cheap foam ice boxes that wallmart sells as plant covers. When we bought them it was interesting to see us explaining why we did not want the lids. We have about 50 of those, plus went to wallmart a couple weeks ago and they had the regular plant covers on sale for 50-75 cents. I about fell over. These are those big high covers like you see them cover roses with. We bought out everything they had. About 25 more covers. Regular price on those things was close to $4 each.
