My fingers are numb as I type this. Our first frost advisory of the season has been issued (Thanks, Cheryl). Since our area is a little marginal for citrus, I felt the urge to cover my young orange, lemon and lime trees with Agribon row covers, which can protect down to about 6 degrees F. I also covered my succulent pots and, dang it, should get out there and cover my hot peppers, basil and tomatoes. Yes, I still have hot peppers, basil and tomatoes!

If you don’t have row covers, use sheets, plastic tarps, canvas tarps… even Christmas mini lights.
