Tucking my babies in for the night

By Penny Stine

Since it was supposed to freeze last night, I brought all my seedlings in to spend the night on the kitchen table. I carried them all back out this morning around 5:45 and noted that the thermometer on the deck said it was almost 40.

I wasn't going to bring them in again tonight. The earlier forecast said it would get down to 37, but I just checked NOAA and it said 31. Dang! Guess I'll be bringing all these plants back in... They're going in the ground this weekend, but in the meantime, I'll tuck them all back in tonight in the house. It would be so sad to kill them now.
