Harvest Plant Protection

Merry meet all,

The full moon passed recently. The moon was beautiful! The frost has come this week-it’s early! I have to cover my plants tonight. The tender plants need to be protected. 

Mabon is almost here! I can sure feel autumn in the air. It’s that time of year again. I harvested a good sized green tomato and a tiny cucumber today. The tomato refused to ripen on the vine. It took its own sweet time. So since there was a frost and I was so impatient, in they came. See photo below.









To protect your plants from the frost, you can use glass cloches, buckets or old sheets. You may still have some tender annuals that are producing veggies such as tomatoes. See the cucumber in the image above? Btw, garden grown veggies are tastier than the ones you buy in the store. Don’t believe me. Grow your own then comment below. Remove the coverings in the morning. The plants need to breathe but be covered at night. Watering the garden during the late afternoon is a good idea. I just stepped out to protect my plants and it was so cold out! Wow. Good thing for tea. 

Hardy plants will be fine. The temperatures warm up during the day time. Don’t smother the plants! Keep an eye on the temperatures on the websites. Trust your instincts. Stock up on soil and pots if you want to bring plants in for the winter. I plan to bring in the catnip for Penny, the lemon grass, the ginger, the geranium and my herbs such as basil, parsley and maybe a few other ones. I do plan to plant garlic this fall but in a different spot than before for bigger garlic heads. 

I hope this all helps you eager gardeners to protect your plants from the frost. I am sad because I want to help my plants grow as wonderfully as they can. At the same time, I know that time of year is here! But I will keep draping old sheets over my garden at night and letting them get sun all day. If you do the same for yours, you can still have a good harvest! Your plants worked hard for you. They deserve care too.
