We have had two frosts so far this year and are having a third frost tonight. So far I have covered my plants and they've been fine. That is the plan for tonight as well (for most plants: I went ahead and harvested most of the greens).
But tomorrow night they are forecasting our first freeze. I have plants covered with green tomatoes, poblanos and jalapenos. Will they stand up to a freeze if I just cover them with sheets? Or should I go ahead and harvest everything? I would rather wait if the tomatoes have a chance of ripening, but then again, I'd rather have green tomatoes than no tomatoes. I could make a green tomato relish or some chow chow, which the hubster is fond of.
What are your thoughts?
