You can cover them overnight will old sheets, table cloths or towels. Or drive a couple of stakes into the ground and drape an old blanket over the stakes to protect the whole bed. Lunch bags probably won't offer much protection but large heavyweight paper grocery bags will. Let's hope it warms up soon!
