I think you'll be fine doing exactly what you did last night. That's pretty much what I did the first part of January when it hit 32F at the airport(a little colder here).
I had tarp though so that's mostly what I used.
I watered thoroughly, set a few jugs/buckets of water around the plants and used tarp, blankets, buckets etc. to cover. They were fine.
A few potatoes that had just come up I just buried with nice dry lightweight Live Oak leaves. Blew them off the next day and they were fine.
Some tomatoes that I had in big pots. I lugged them inside so of course they were fine.
I watched a volunteer tomato pull though it undamaged with no protection. I suspect it watched back and laughed at my frantic efforts.
I don't feel like covering this time so will gamble. At least I have less to lose than [url=https://veggiesofvero.com/index.htm]these people.[/url] I may start checking their [url=https://veggiesofvero.com/index_files/VOVFarmNews.htm]Farm News[/url] to get an idea what I "should" have planted... or should be harvesting.
