I thought it was time for a bit of a more light-hearted post. Over the past few days, I have heard many people discussing their concerns over the cold and how to protect the plants they may have already put in, or those that have germinated in their gardens. Here are two helpful links, one from Robin Erb of the Detroit Free Press and one from Michigan State University’s Extension Office, through which I received my master gardener training. Both of them emphasize that using fabric is preferable to plastic. Take a look! Detroit Free PressMSU Extension
