Awwwwwwww poor babies! Joseph.. If you have some pvc pipe laying around, make yourself a little high riser about a foot up and toss some plastic over it. It's like having a gh in a gh. it has made all the difference in the world for when I have tiny tots out in the cold.

You can take the plastic off during the day, so the plants don't get too much humidity and put back on at night. If I know I am going to have to leave the plastic on for several days, I hold back on moisture in the soil as the condensation that builds up during the day is usually enough to keep them from drying out.

Poison I hope your babies make it. I think if possible, I would bring them inside for a couple of days before the worst hits night. I think I heard your having record breaking snow and cold in your area for more than almost 40 or 50 years.

Chelle Thanks so much. Yep I meant tulle and couldn't think of the word. Thanks for the pic too. That a big help. Big Grin

I wish the wind would stop. Sounds like freight trains going by non stop outside. Winds brought a big hickory branch down on top of trailer, noise scared the beegibbers out of me. Went outside to make sure trailer was ok and glad I moved as another big branch off an Oak came crashing down. Think I am going to call the neighbor and see if I can park my vehicle in her yard. She has a big cleared driveway area. I love my trees, but sometimes they are a hazzard and I can't afford a new windshield.
