frost bites

The Denniston Hill Crew was up this weekend to put in the garden. Everything went in and then we had 2 consecutive nights of heavy frost. I was able to cover most of the tomatoes as they had cages to hold up a tarp. The big white canvases had a previous life as swanky Manhattan curtains. Reuse. The rest of the garden didn't do so well. Summer squash is laying flat, eggplants are kneeling and red leaf lettuce and the cukes are drooping bad. We'll see what needs to be replanted once it warms up later. Kara is on her way.
