There are few types of vegetables that don’t always survive winter in my zone 9a garden without protection when temperatures dip below freezing.
In the past, I have protected my San Marzano tomato plants with success by covering them completely with frost cloth.
This year, I decided to protect my bell pepper plants. The reason was because they were producing so well up until December and I didn’t want to have to wait a long time for new peppers.
