Our old chicken house looked like a small greenhouse with about half my potted plants. The other half sits in the garage.
The wood stack cover was perfect for covering up our tender papaya trees.
The sight of blanket covered greenery brought back memories of my Abuelita. During Winters past she also covered her tender tropicals with whatever she could find on hand- and 'colchas' or blankets always fit the bill.
This old blanket covers a few of my 'hoja santa' specimens. The one exposed on the right survived without cover overnight. I like the plants 'root beer' aroma. It's used in some Mexican cuisine recipes.
And the small goldfish also survived the overnight freeze. Hardy little guys!
We're leaving all the covers on until this spell passes. Hope the rest of the garden fares well. As for us, we're just trying to stay safe and warm indoors.
