Do they think it is going to help when it is in the mid 20's? This guy is our neighbor a few doors down he has a lovely yard and did a nice job of tucking in his plants.
I had to laugh as I was driving Paige to school today at all the covered plants. What efforts some people made and I really hope it works for them although when it is this cold for as long as it was and is going to be again tonight I don't think some of the smaller more delicate plants have a chance.
However I will say that this guy might have a chance to save some of his fruit that is left on his trees. When I drove by while it was still a bit dark out this morning I saw colored lights under the blankets. Yep that just might add enough heat to keep the frost off of your oranges. That was a good idea.
But this guy gets the award for best effort. This is a large frame he as been building for a few weeks and now I know why. Just thought he was a little odd but I guess he really loves his plants. He had a ten or twelve of these built all over his lawn in different sizes. Gotta hand it to the guy for loving his plants that much.
