Not for the nightshades

The newish volunteer tomato plants and the aging tomato survivors have done fine in this cold weather. The last of the potato shoots, though, withered up and is no more. This is a little surprising; I'd have thought that the potatoes would be hardier than their cousins. Maybe there's a slight difference in microclimates, ground warmth, altitude, or exposure to the wind.
