Ugh. Need I say more?
Clearly, I took this picture from an upstairs window. Because I’m a wuss and I don’t want to get cold. 🙂
Are you wondering about that funny pot upside down on the wall of water? I used a tomato cage inside the wall of water to keep it from blowing over and crushing the pepper in there. But the tomato cage also prevents the wall of water from forming a “teepee” that would protect the plant (like the other walls of water on the left). So it needed a hat 🙂
Some pots filled with dirt and awaiting annuals.
I covered the plants that I could with empty flower pots. No picture, cuz I’d have to go outside for that!
And I covered the tomatoes with that lovely sheet which is probably soaked now (I always wondered just how effective a sheet could possibly be to keep plants warm. Would you be ok with just a sheet? Not me!)
My tomatoes actually look half dead under that sheet. We had a very cold night last week and even though I covered them, it apparently wasn’t enough. I think I messed up by planting such big plants. If they’d been smaller and fit completely inside the walls of water, they might’ve been fine.
But the bottoms of the plants look alive, so I’m hoping if I just trim off the brittle upper branches that the plants will come back nice and strong.
I’ll show you …..when it warms up (supposed to be in the 70s all next week) 🙂
In the meantime, my sweet peas were starting to search for something to lean on. So I went ahead and brought in one of the designated sweet pea planters and planted them!
And the other baby plants will have to wait a little longer:
