Brrr! It was cold and rainy today. When I took the dog out to his pen this morning there was actually some thin ice on top of his water dish. Some of the plants looked a little worse for the wear after the cold night. The weather is unseasonably cool this spring--normally it is safe to start putting tomatoes and other warm weather plants outside by May 15 in this part of Indiana. This evening I covered all of the more tender plants with clay flower pots to give them some protection against the cold night. I will remove my makeshift cloches in the morning and hope for warmer day.
