Frost

30 Apr 2012
Storms 17°C / 63°F

Had three nights of frost. The potato shoots died back to ground level. Some of the frosty corn got nipped, but it all seems to have survived. Everything else looks fine.

I was impressed when I read about the condition you’re gardening in…
I never realized that the region in the US where you live has such short summer (frost-free season)…
Allthough you have such late frost, you’re tomatoes are in the greenhouse yet. Is it heated? (I’m just planting them out at this moment, keeping my fingers crossed so we don’t get frost anymore…)

My winter snow cover lasts from November to mid-March most years. I normally plant out my tomatoes the first week of June… They are currently outside hardening off. I cover them at night, and if it’s expected to get under 40 I put a light bulb under the plastic with them.
