Today I bought some 6 mil plastic wrap, I bought a small roll that is 10ft wide and 20 ft long, it should be long enough to cover my raised beds.  Why do I need plastic sheeting you might ask?  I will be using it, to place over my raised beds so that I can protect them when it get’s too cold.  For now, it will just get draped over the plants, eventually I will build a frame for it to go over, or at least that the plan anyways.  Eventually I might even make a cold frame or two, but that might have to wait a bit, as for now it is more important to cover the plant so the frost doesn’t get them.  The weather here is hot one moment and cold the next, the poor plant’s are not sure what to make of it and things that should have stopped producing are still flowering and or have veggies still on them.  Just yesterday, I picked enough green beans and pea’s to take to a friend and I still have more that are close to being ready.   In a pinch, two walmart bag one inside the other works, as you can tie it around the plant depending on what type of plant it is.  Please remember that if any of the plastic, touches the leaves it will still freeze.
