COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Farmers not getting a lot of sleep Monday night in order to keep a close watch on falling temperatures and their crops.

Oakes Farm in Collier County is just one of the farms covering crops and using sprinklers to keep the temperatures above freezing overnight. Tomatoes, peppers, and squash seem to be of the biggest concern.

Farmers say this is the first time in the last 30 years temps got this low this early in December.
