    So following up on that pic from the dark late last night: at like 7:45pm, a friend offered huge row covers for free. If I had known these suckers would be in the mix, I never would’ve worried for a moment! :weee

    (New pic taken a few minutes ago.)

    Yeah, the posts for the trellis came in handy there. :D

    We did have some patchy frost. Any by "patchy," I mean that within my blueberry bed, some of the pine straw had frost on it, some of it didn't. Anyway, glad I had the covers out there. Taking a look this morning, 24 hours later, it looks like some of the uncovered basil took damage, but may survive. Everything else appears unfazed.

    Forecast calls for a low of 45 on Saturday night. After that, looks like it's "late spring" type weather moving forward. Lows all of next week are looking to be in the mid to upper 50s, with some days over 80.

    I haven't gotten all of the seeds in the ground that I wanted for some of the companion plants, and I'm now starting to think that I'll just wait until we return from vacation for some things. Doesn't look like we'll get frequent enough rain next week to keep seeds near the surface moist, though the total should be more than enough for the stuff that's already growing, so I won't need a neighbor to step in to do general watering. I'll probably go ahead and plant the sunflowers today, since they're an inch deep, but wait on the shallow-sow stuff.

    Well, she runs a non-profit farming ministry, so I kinda doubt she'll need any from me. ;)

    Glad that your plants survived the frost!

    she will likely have good connections if you need to get rid of too much extra if you can't get it put up or your other friends/family don't want any more.

    when we were able to get extras we'd put things up and then pass it along to a food pantry/food kitchen for the homeless/poor (some are picky about what they'll take so it is always a good idea to ask around first).
