Surviving the so-called frost

Well, Portland didn't actually hit freezing last night as was predicted-some out-lying areas got a little nip, but we survived. Since I'm not really growing any vegetables right now, I wasn't too concerned but I can see how others might go nuts with the plastic wraps and wall-o-waters in attempts to keep the tender starts alive and thriving. So this is why gardeners say wait until after the last frost to start your warm weather plants...

Do pay attention to the weather reports this time of year and keep some little plastic jackets handy...hmm, I'm having a marketing idea. Little sweaters, scarves and hats for your plants. Better patent that one before someone steals it.
