Late Frost Kills Plants

Last nights frost was worse than expected, I did cover everything, but the wind had its way on my covers. The cover on the grapes was torn open on one end, the cover on the taters, blown in the pond. With a windchill of 27 degrees last night, I am not sure if the covers would have done much anyway. I have one basket that I planted late just in case of a late frost, so I will still be able to haverst at least 80 pounds. Maybe they will come back????

Over the weekend DS and I put up the support wires for the grapes and black/raspberries.
