This time of year, spring warm spells can turn on a dime and so they have. We've had really mild weather but now more seasonal weather returns. Yesterday they were talking about a heavy frost for this morning and the turnips were just poking up yesterday afternoon. Turnips are hardy but I wasn't going to chance having a heavy frost knock down newly emerged babies so I rigged up row cover over them.

Plastic pipes with old dollar store tennis balls stuck over them held up row fabric folded in half or so, a brick on each end. Ya make it up as ya go along!

Sure enough, the frost looked like snow this morning so I'm glad I did this. They got uncovered this morning but will be recovered this evening for more frost tomorrow. The other side of the bed has beets and rutabagas along the edge but none of those are up yet.
