I'm still recording and researching seeds I received!

I finally tied together double widths of 28" wide garden fencing (10 gauge?) and bent them into a low hoop tunnel. Dropped some indoor plants onto cardboard, put the fence hoop tunnel over them, draped a double thickness of 3.5 mil translucent film over that, for warmth.

I HAD to get these plants out of my bedroom before the aphids crowded me out!

Now, after a month of day and night temps never lower than mid-40s, we're going to have two nights down to 28-30F!

I hope the ad-hoc tunnel keeps them warm enough (Brunnera, Penstemon & Home Depot Primroses plants). The Penstemon are around 15 months old, WS plus babying along, and finally more than 1" tall.

I assume that the Primroses will laugh at frost, and I may get them into the gorund right before frost, but will still park a 2-liter cloche over each, and/or plastic film, for those first two cold nights.
