First Frost

Last night, patchy frost. Most of the garden survived with the exception of some hostas along the fence and the sweet pepper plant in the raised bed on the south side against the house. The sweet pepper plant was looking a little wilted this morning but for the most part in tact. I revived with some water. I was under the false impression my plants nearer to structures would escape the frost under the theory that structures would give off heat. Guess not. Looking forward to digging up plants today to salvage indoors especially some late bloomers that have yet to show
