Frost cloth comes in handy this time of year
The latest cold snaps have reminded me about “frost cloth.” Frost cloth is an agricultural product that comes in strips of loosely woven fiber that will give you 10 degrees in your flower bed or tomato plant gardens.
It can be bought at any hardware store or big box store.
Frost cloth is also called by other names. On our tobacco farms, and down in Cuba at their tobacco farms, they’re used to filter the sun by allowing only 70 percent to feed the plants with that solar magic.
Being frugal, I keep my frost cloth for years and years rolled up in a box in the garage. When the need arises, I simply take out the condensed roll and open it up to cover my tomatoes, peppers or beautiful flowers from the cold north winds.
