Tucked in for the night

We're expecting the first frost tonight, forecast for 31 degrees which means it could be cooler here. We put out the remay to protect the broccoli, beets, lettuce and peppers.  There are still at least 2 dozen big peppers out there and we hate picking them early when they could have kept on going, so we pulled the blanket over the whole big row.

This bed is looking so lush- I just want to bite into everything, parsley, nasturtiums, turnips, chard, spinach, dill and green onions all such a yummy "eat me" green.  Most of this should be alright with the cold- accept the nasturtiums- which could be laid flat by morning and finished for the season.

A sleeping bee, hoping to stay warm under the cover of this zinnia tonight.
