Green Fried Tomatoes

Sub-freezing temperatures have descended upon Big Bear about a month early this year and last night we lost our cold tender tomatoes & yellow squash.
The onions, beets, kale, collard greens, red lettuce, chard and snow peas are still producing but we will need to hustle now to get our winter greens seeded and sprouted before the first really hard freeze.
Once established the hardiest of greens will survive the winter if they're covered and protected from wind & snow.
It's commonly understood in these parts that only a fool would try and predict weather here but I have a feeling that it may be a long cold winter.
