COLD temps (again) overnight
Potential for 39 degrees overnight Saturday the 30th.
This time around it's the length of time of the chill - over 8 hours below 50 degrees. There a number of plants that are sensitive.

Veggies, cover or bring inside: eggplant, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, basil, squash, zucchini, melons, beans, sweet potato, peanuts, tomatillos.

Annuals, cover or bring inside: sweet potato vine, coleus, celosia, caladium, hibiscus, zinnia, olives, tropical annuals and houseplants, tropical fruits like olive and fig.

What will be fine? Perennials, trees and shrubs, cold tolerant veggies (broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, peas, kale), cold tolerant annuals (pansies, nemesia, diascia, osteospermum, most other annuals besides the above)

Good luck!
