Yesterday was annual container day. The weatherman promised warm night time temps for at least a week which will put us thru to Memorial Day weekend and we should be OK for frost. I am happy to report that there is no major damage from the frost. I had pepper plants in the cold frame and sweet potato vine under frost cloth. Both have very soft, velvety leaves and they pouted all morning and looked droopy but by afternoon the sun had changed their attitude. We will see if the peony buds were shocked too much to bloom, and of course, the apple trees were unprotected. The temperature in the morning on the garden thermometer was 27F which is pretty darn cold.
