Protect your plants tonight

If you were bold and have already set out tomato and pepper plants, you may want to cover them tonight. Don't forget your flowers too. In the past, we have used paper bags placed upside down with a hole in the bottom of the bag. I've read that some gardeners use sheets or blankets to cover the plants.
If there is frost in the morning and you forgot to cover them, turn on the sprinkler before the sun hits the plants. That really works. In the orchards, they use giant fans, to blow the frost away before the sun shines on the trees.  It's supposed to rain Tuesday and then start warming up. I'm waiting till next weekend to plant seeds. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms!
