The killing frost finally made it to the maritime northwest, about a month later than usual. The chiles, tomatoes and tomatillos that have been barely holding on are done for.

The temps dropped to 29 last night and are supposed to drop to 26 tonight. The plants under the low tunnels were able to survive 29, but I think they are going to be goners any lower than that. So it looks like tomorrow is going to be a day of pulling plants to hang in the garage to finish ripening whatever is left.

the it's time to plant cover crops in the parts of the tunnel not dedicated to winter veggies.
