Freezin for a reason

Well we had another frost warning this week. I was more prepared this time.  I was able to cover up everything before it hit.
Is this why they call them veggie  beds?
Last time the hydrangea and tomato got hit, but this time no damage seems to happen.
The cat didn't get frost bitten either :-)

I read in an Extension Office pamphlet, that it is better to use sheets and blankets and covers.  That way, the heat from the ground gets "trapped" in there. If you wrap them around to tight, it doesn't work as well.
