It's Not Summer Yet! New England and Atlantic Coast States To Get Hit With Freezing Temperatures

This Memorial Day weekend is going to bring unseasonable (but probably becoming more common in the near future) cold weather--i.e., freezing or lower--to most areas of New England and the Mid-Atlantic. Obviously the concern here is for garden plants and fruit trees. Here are some articles discussing how to protect plants from frost:

If you are covering your plants, it is important that the covering (especially if using plastic) not touch the plant as it will transmit the cold to the leaves or parts being contacted, and may be worse than having no cover. You can build a frame to hold the covering; or, as the Sunset magazine article suggests, if you lack time, put a patio chair or something similar over the plant to hold the covering.
