This time, it's a single overnight drop to 42Â°F (worst case, upper 30's and frost), then back up to overnight temps in the 50's -- average that is supposed to last until at least the end of this month.
This kind of transition weather is the worst. Do I bring all the container plants in or leave them out? I've moved some things closer/close to the house and covered, albeit with light protection only. Most everything in-ground is too big to cover so it's live or die.
It's already 43Â°F out in the open -- I ventured outside and covered a few more things I'd already brought to the patio for protection where it is currently 47Â°F. The moon was gorgeous in the chilly sky -- I didn't even need to turn any lights on.
