We haven’t seen as cold of temperatures as are on the way in years.  I’m going to cover everything, even the onions, and today I’ll purchase some straw or hay to make a thick mulch for the strawberries, in addition.   The onions should be cold hearty to 20 degrees, but I’m not taking any chances, as they’ve been in the ground for 3 weeks, at least.  Its best to water before covering, but onions especially, should not be too wet heading into the night.  Good luck!
