a late frost equals plant protection

We’ve had some really unusually great weather. So great that things started to come up and even bloom way too early! Then, as expected, a big freeze came. Another one is scheduled for tonight. Here’s how it looked for the first one:

Scary halloween show. Wrapped fruit trees in row cover.

a pretty pillowcase adds a decorative touch. Two bamboo stakes make it easy to slip this over a small daphne.

When you run out of sheets, start looking for boxes. Beer boxes with a bamboo stake through the handle worked well.

I put away all the sheets and stuff, so looks like i’ll be hauling everything back out tonight! Can’t wait til we’re in the clear and on to the real spring!
