*I use DeWitt N-Sulate medium weight , 1.5 oz permeable frost protection fabric. Each blanket is 10'x12', the perfect size to cover my 9' x 5' beds. You can buy these many places online. Just Google it and you'll get tons of sources. Fortunately, one of my local nurseries carries these so I save shipping costs. They are durable and last for many seasons.

I knew it was coming...it was only a matter of time. The local meteorologists have issued the first light freeze warning for the Hill Country tonight. I'm a bit concerned but not in panic mode. The forecast is only for a light freeze. A few years ago I invested in some very good frost blankets*. Tonight, I used them all. I tucked in all my vegetables and will hope for the best. I think they'll be fine. Progress report tomorrow.
