Hard Freeze

We got down to 28 degrees last night.  I had hoped that my fall garden might squeak out a little produce, but I think we've run out of time.  Lesson learned.

I need to get the plants/seeds in by August at the latest.  Just not enough time with my late start of mid September.

I thought I'd do a "straw bale" cold frame but I've decided that instead of putting money into keeping the fall garden going, I'd rather put the money into building up the frames/soil/manure to have a better Spring and Summer garden for next year.

That said, I still went ahead and covered the plants that I have in the ground now.  We've had freezing temps for the last 2 nights.  One more night to go and then we'll be back into the 70's during the day and 40's at night.  Not bad.
