    I planted my tomatoes and peppers a couple of weeks ago when the weather was warm. Now, it looks like I will have to cover them to protect them from a likely frost or freeze this Wed and Thur. A late frost/freeze sometimes happens in this area and I should have waited a couple of more weeks before planting.

    It is Yard Crap's fault when y'all kept putting up posts about your fancy tomato contraptions!

    Yeah, the foretasted low for here tomorrow night is 37. I haven't planted mine in the big containers on the boat dock yet, so I can still move them inside. My wife planted a bunch of annuals in pots yesterday. Looks like we may be moving them in for a few nights. Surely after this week we'll be OK.

    I pretend to be tuff, but it does hurt when I post words and photos of my crap here hoping yall might respond and post a word of encouragement or maybe say, "That won't work." (or just "Hello")

    Yall here on YC are my friends. I don't have any face to face friends as I am a happy "Classic Introvert".


    Not being dumb, generally don't plant until around April 10th or when the ground is 65degrees. Planting early does not give you a head start as maters like warm dirt. No matter as this year leaned on my Druid roots and planted as I celebrated the first day of Spring. Global Warming may give us a frost tomorrow night. I mean - well I don't keep up with politics but frost is what it is, never hit here after April 10 in the last 20 years. Maybe the globe is cooling? I will just put a bucket over them. Cold is not the deal, but frost can kill.

    If I am wiped out, it would have been the same if I had not Druid planted, but waited till ~ Starting over is "gardening". I would hate to post how many plants of all types I have destroyed experimenting.

    You will be okay. A little frost will not get in your way. I don't have faith in many people, but I have faith in you. You know to do to keep the frost off. You will have an excellent crop this year.
