Re: idea for plants??

Hi Donna,
        If the mulch is not an ice cube also, another protective layer
probably will not hurt. If  the bags are cubes, maybe lining them up in the
windward side of the beds will force the blowing slow to drift there and add
a layer of protection. Are there any Christmas trees left in the
neighborhood to lay over the garden...even boughs could help.
