The warmer nights with no frost didn’t last very long. Last night I was awakened at 0300 by a cold breeze coming through the ajar window. Sure enough it was freezing again, so I got up and spent the next hour covering crops and yesterdays cementing.

Surprisingly the tomatoes survived but only barely.

Today I am picking all the rest of the tomatoes, pumpkins and maize so that I won’t have to do any more covering and uncovering, except for the daily cement work.

One thing that is good about the freeze is that it kills off the bugs and larvae on the kale and cabbages.

Actually there are lots of good things about a freeze.
