Protecting Vegetable Plants in Colder Weather

I am new to growing vegetables and fruit. I started a small garden with peppers and tomatoes in April. They have produced some tomatoes and are still producing peppers. My question is what do I do now that the cold weather is coming and my peppers are still producing? The garden is in a planter and is open on three sides. I have added mulch, but do I need to cover the plants with a towel or bag? Any suggestions?

If it only gets cold at night keep completly covering the plants as long as you want to. You can't keep them covered in the daytime because they do need light. But eventually you will have to give them up. I imagine if you have a really sunny window that gets full sunlight almost all day, you could bring them inside and see how they do.
