Cabbage can handle a light

Cabbage can handle a light frost. For anything else, try covering them with newspapers, a towel or such. if possible, make a small tent using sticks or if that is not possible, just lay the material over them.
You can also use a milk jug full of hot water and stick it under the tent. This will slow the dropping temperatures some.

Hope this helps ya...
