They're calling for frost for the next 2 nights and I am looking for a way to cover my plants. It has rained all day so the ground is wet. I was wondering what else I could do. We tried to stake out some coverings but the wind keeps picking it up.

If you already found stakes and a cover, I would just Weigh down the edges of your cover.. rocks, pots, picnic bench, use the handle of your shovel or other garden tools. It's only gotta get through the next 36 hours.

Use heavy objects to hold the frost cloth or blankets/etc. in place. We do not have frost problems but the winds exceed 30mph.

Maybe check the winds at night. Frost usually does not occur in very windy nights. So the winds may die down later.

Right now I have stuff outside that I covered with basically anything I can turn upside down, ... cardboard boxes, flower pots (plug holes with crumpled plastic to keep warm air from making a chimney), coconut liners for wire baskets,
