An Early Look at Plankets for Frost Protection

Plankets are snazzy frost blankets that work well to protect potted plants as well as shrubs in the landscaping. The company sent us some to try out, so we made a video for everyone to see.

Looks like a good product. I would be willing to try them. What I truly enjoyed about the demo was the participation of the kids and the scenes around the farm. Perfect human interest & family article. Good job!

I agree, nice of ya'll to do a video on these, or any other topic as well! Well done!

I've never used the product mentioned but use other row covers and sure do know their value. Looking forward to the report when they've been put to the test.

Thanks for taking the time to share this!

That's what made it so enjoyable! And Raffle Boy made it even better. Smiling
Nope, didn't count no weeds! Oh, BTW We still run around here barefoot all the time. So now we don't
feel so all alone.
Hilarious!

I gave up a long time ago on trying to get Trish to wear shoes outside. Hilarious! But I have rules for the children and they don't have a choice. Green Grin!
