freeze warning

there's a freeze warning posted for tonight and, probably, tomorrow night too...something had to be done with the teosinte and i was nominated and elected to do it...since the plants re trying to lay over to disperse seeds the first thing to do was to contain them in the bamboo supports which i did with jute twine once that was accomplished i wrapped the bamboo and wire cages around the bases with frost cloth conveniently secured wit clothespins...only took about an hour and fifteen minutes...why the bother? trying to ge the seeds in these ears to maturity and frost would put the kibosh to that...if ti doesn't get too warm tomorrow i believe i will leave them wrapped.
