I’m a big fan of floating row covers myself.

I live in zone 6 and was able to grow somewhat cold-hardy crops until the first few weeks of January. Probably would have kept growing, too, if a freakishly heavy snow didn’t collapse the fabric. I actually still have a few lettuce plants left in the garden.
