So the Valley of the Sun, Arizona, had a cold front. For 6 or 7 consecutive nights, we hit 32 or less, especially out here in the 'outlying area', we call west of Goodyear. It meant freeze and frost protection. Blankets. Right now, in my garden, I am picking and eating beets, 2 types of kale, swiss chard, pak choi, and napa cabbage. I also have asparagus and green onions, but not ready to eat yet. The only thing it appears I lost was a lone yellow pear tomato plant that truly was a stray. It froze right away, regardless of protection. The rest of what is there looks happy and healthy to be there!
