We got our first frost Tuesday as well and woke this morning to a freeze 
(the TV weather people made sure to warn us well about the freeze 
yesterday) So we went out and got the remaining peppers, basil, 
tomatoes, eggplant yesterday evening. We have lots of things including 
some tomatoes, melons and peppers in hoophouses plus lots of cold 
weather crops under row covers (more for bug protection rather than 
weather protection). Lets see, that would be the salad mix, pac choi, 
chinese cabbage, radishes, spinach, beets, carrots, turnips and fall 
planted onions (for next year) and we still have a planting of spuds to 
dig out of the ground which hopefully will not freeze solid in the next 
few weeks.

It looks like a bad winter coming though the woolyworms are inconclusive 
about this.
