Oh no!! The little weather gadget I just added to my blog says areas of possible frost tonight. What am I going to do?? What am I going to do?? **runs around in circles waving hands over head**
Wish I already had that Agribon, which has around 4 degrees of frost protection. At least I do have some garden burlap and sheets. I think I'll definitely cover the lettuce and and peas. Guess I might as well try to throw something over the tomatoes and peppers too.
Luckily we worked on the garden for a few hours yesterday to harvest all we could just in case this happened, so there isn't much left on the vines. But there are still quite a few green tomatoes and lots of lettuce. We had so much lettuce we cut enough for several huge salads for us and a big bag for the neighbors, and there is still lots left. I hope they survive!!! I better harvest my herbs too, didn't have time to do that yesterday. I'm going to use them for potpourri, flavored oils and vinegars, and herb butter.
I guess we'll see what happens!
update: I just went outside and there really are a lot of green tomatoes and habaneros. A lot more than I thought. I wonder if I should pick them all? Man, I really don't have the time for this today...sigh.
I did a little research and it seems I probably should pick most of the green tomatoes. The habaneros may survive with covering. http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/pepper/msg101812265303.html I think I'll try picking some and leaving others as an experiment (and time saver).
