Arizona is so great for gardening besides the terrible native soil, virtually no rain and killer summers... I ran a continuous garden this year and even let some summer crops carry through to the new year. I have tomatoes, peppers, sweet potatoes and green beans going right now that are super frost sensitive. Last weekend it got down to 22 degrees. We broke out the Christmas lights and clear plastic to protect our vulnerable plants. Hubby got BIG points that chilly night. I hope it doesn't freeze again for a while.
I had 4 pepper plants that were away from the pack and we couldn't find the rest of our lights, so I just covered them and called it good. No good...
It was a hard pill to swallow. To make matters worse, I snapped my most hearty, gorgeous, fruitful tomato plant when I was taking the lights down :(
I can't get too down about it, since I still have 8 pepper plants and 12 tomato plants that are going strong. The peas and beans are looking great too!
Sorry if you are 2 feet under snow right now...
