Cold Weather Alert, 1/6/14

Tonight the temperatures are planning to drop into the teens and possibly to single digits.  Any tender plants you have including cool season veggies, strawberries, and pansies are at risk.  Consider covering them tonight with a cloth.  The best of course of those made specifically for plants, but something may be better than nothing.  If you have unplanted containers you will want to group them and heel them into some mulch or leaves and place them close to a building where they will get reflected heat.
