Cold Frames

Lettuces this end, beets on
the other end
Monday night's low was predicted to be 37F, with Tuesday night's low being 32F, so Monday afternoon I got the covers for the cold frames (called 'lights') covered in greenhouse plastic and Steve helped me get them onto the cold frames themselves.

I'm really glad I got that done, because Monday night wound up being 31F,  and Tuesday was 34; last night we finally had our first frost of the season.  This means that the kale and parsnips will now be sweeter, and it means that I won't lose my beets, because they're covered!
