We tried

The strawberry patch - plants on left have already been uncovered.
Some 6 inches of straw with tarps on top wasn't quite enough.  Last week's cold nights nipped some of the early strawberry blossoms and fruits.  The unseasonal warm weather this past month had many of our fruits blooming and leafing out well ahead of schedule.  So when the temparture dropped to 27 degrees (or possibly lower) last Wed. night, our best efforts weren't quite enough.  That said, many of the strawberry blossoms were fine and we expect many more blossoms and fruit to come.  And it looks like some of the tree fruit survived too.
