Around three weeks ago, I lost 25% of my garden because of an early killing frost. Now, the temps are low enough to be a problem for what's left. I covered everything with cloth sheets last night (which got down to 21 degrees), and today, it's still hanging in there....But, Friday night, it will be 19 degrees, and it's gonna be close. Saturday night will be 38 at the lowest, so it seems this freezing weather will be overwith for a week or two. I hope it gets through it...Is anyone else faced with the same problem as me right now, with their garden?

Not here yet. Cold, rainy weather did in some summer vegies, but I saw I have a few more ripe tomatoes. Not typical! I hope you can save a few. Good luck!

Usually we'd have had some frost by now too but so far things have only dipped to the low 40's. We're still getting tomatoes, eggplants and peppers, and some UFO squash (which are apearantly powdery mildew tolerant to still be alive) are actually producing flowers and squash.
