Weatherman told us at the 5 pm news that we could expect temps around
29-30 degrees F tonight. Miz Anne and I got out and covered the citrus
trees with plastic and I set the heater up in the greenhouse. Will go
out and turn it on about 11 pm.

We picked the last of the kumquats, about 2 pints, and about 25 lemons.
I think I'm going to borrow my friends digital camera and take a picture
of the bigger ones. Maybe set a tennis ball by the side of them so a
true comparison can be made. I'll let those that are curious know when
I'm done. Some folks have difficulty visualizing a 2 plus pound lemon. I
know I still have a problem realizing how big this variety of citrus

The rest of our garden can pretty much handle the minor freezes we get
down here so don't expect a big problem with the morning thaw.
