I live 6 miles past Sisterdale, Tx. I've planted strawberry, tomatoes, jalapenos. They are all in containers. Do I need to bring them in?

I just checked your weather forecast and it appears that the frost will be short-lived and probably not enough to really harm your plants. Since you are gardening in containers, if you can move them into a shed or garage overnight, they should be fine. If that's not an option, set them close to your house for a little protection and drape them overnight with a sheet or blanket for a little insulation. Don't take them indoors, though - the warm indoor temperatures will be worse for your plants than the early morning frost!
