Cold weather this week

Q&A

I just planted my tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and basil (all starter plants) today and then realized that it’s going to be way cold for a few days at the end of this week. Will they be OK? Do they need to be covered, and if so, how? Thanks! - Danica -

    You should cover your plants if there is danger of a frost. You can try using garden fabric or a lightweight sheet, being careful not to break the plants and cover to the ground. Remove the cover as soon as it warms up in the morning.
