It isn’t abnormal to get a freeze before May 15 which happens to be the last freeze date.  My garden is located in hardiness zone 5b.  My husband and I have been watching the weather forecast for the past few weeks because of the fruit trees in the orchard we grow.  The low 20*F night coming up in the next 48 hours is making me nervous.  The best thing to do in this situation is to BREATH and focus on the next 8 hours.  Luckily we are getting sleet and then snow before the freeze arrives.

Below is a video of what I do to help protect the spring edibles from freeze.  Keep in mind, the window boxes feature in this content is loaded with spring loving greens and a few new starter plants like marigolds and delicate red sail lettuce. This is part of my grow your own food series featuring window boxes.
