    I overseeded my entire yard with a $60 bag of seed.... Don't think the frost is going to kill the seed but it will force it dormant :(

    My neighbor does a LOT of veggies in the summer... like 5 or 6 raised garden beds, greenhouse, etc. He's been covering everything with tarps the last few days to protect it. Hoping it all survives.. he hooks me up with fresh veggies all summer :cry:

    I haven't felt comfortable putting anything in the ground yet. All my plants are safe in the greenhouse still.

    I am not much of a gardener but my peppers are doing fine but they are not outside all the time yet, just when it's sunny and warm and inside at night. Once they get a little bigger I will move them to their own pots and keep them outside.

    It’s chilly but we barely had a winter so I can accept it.
    I’ve got some blueberry Bush’s that are okay, and a few plants , nothing toast yet!

    I had just moved my peppers from my "greenhouse" to my raised bed when the frost hit. Tomatoes too. Everything looks pretty wilty, so I'm crossing my fingers. My peppers were just starting to bud.

    I think I might try a greenhouse project this summer - some cute looking small ones made with old windows and stuff. My greenhouse this year was a storage container from Walmart flipped over. It was clear and let plenty of light in, but was easy enough to just grab and toss in the shed for cold nights. (and it was pretty cheap too).

    Was working on the modifications to a shipping container we picked up to use as a temporary horse shelter after work yesterday, got all setup to go and had to go back to the house and find some gloves and a hat...
