Yes, the freeze was deativatsng for me, a tiny vegetable garden-gardener. This was my first time trying a winter garden. My freeze protection device was a Wal-mart Blue tarp which I draped over higher than vegetable sticks. The perimeter was protected somewhat by trash bags filled with leaves and debris I had raked with the fall leaf raking. I provided heat under the tarp with a 100 wt non-efficient light bulb. This length of time and depth of the cold temperatures took a hit and destroyed the tomatoes, which were really beginning to set fruit and the peppers-green and jalepenos. Most likely due to the inadequate light bulb. I might have saved them if I had added a second Light bulb. The geraniums also lost. But the collards, leaf lettuce, broccoli and swiss chard did survive. I'm thinking of expanding my endeavors next fall and to build some sort of low budget greenhouse. Any ideas? As a senior, and planning to augment my shopping with the produce from my garden, I'll need something that I can pretty much build myself from basically home salvage.
