No. I do not talk like that; but it’s supposed be getting cold at nights. Finally. The lettuce bed is tucked in under a canopy of plastic sheeting that is supported by a frame. I take care not to let the plastic touch the leaves. If it freezes, then that contact could damage any vegetation touching the freezing plastic sheeting.
The citrus trees need to be covered as well. Some re-purposed sun umbrellas make this task easy. The base of the two part umbrella stays in the pot during the season when freeze damage can occur (December – March).Once the plastic sheeting has been initially secured with small clamps (paper clips or clothes pins), it stays on whether the umbrella is open or closed for storage.The underside of these umbrellas has reflective material that I believe helps the temperature stay a bit above freezing. I could be wrong. It’s happened before.
The ferns hanging under the pergola get covered with old sheets. Those are also secured with clothes pins.If anyone peeked over the garden wall they might think a Klan meeting was in progress. They would be incorrect.
Here’s to hoping for loads of cold, cold weather to kill any bugs that think they can hang out over the winter.
