It dropped to 28 F. Stuff in the garden seems to be okay, but dry. 
Potatoes were frostbitten, but other than that, everything was frost 
hardy.  There are still a few blossoms on the Gravenstein, and perhaps 
those will still make fruit, but they may have been damaged beyond 
redemption. Some chile plants in my cold frame look unhappy, but they might 
recover.  I'm hoping.  Emerging leaves on my persimmon seem to have taken a 
hard hit.  I guess you are in a microclimate!  Margaret L
