    We bought the materials to do that this year, but so far the heat hasn't  been that bad in my area. Who knows what next year will be like though.

    I keep milk cartons and 2 liter bottles around with the bottoms cut out for cloches to protect from unexpected frosts. They are easy to put on small plants. On larger ones like Tomatoes in cages, you can wrap plastic around a tomato cage, or mulch short plants with straw and then cover with plastic sheets.

    Be sure and role everything back up when you are throw, otherwise a nominally warm sun will cook your plants in the plastic once day time heating occurs.
