Don't believe the weatherman

Post  johnp on Sun 7 Apr - 10:32

Yesterday after checking the week ahead forcast I planted kale and broccoli. I also planted sno peas, mustard and spinich. It was supposed to get down to 45 deg. last night so I did not cover the new plants. This morning my outdoor readings were 39 and 38 degrees. When it got a little light I went out and read the soil temp. with an IR therm. The temp. was 24.6 degrees in one bed and 25.8 in the other. The plants are still standing but I wonder if they will survive.

John,Did you plant seeds or plants? I think those wee plants will be fine, they are cold tolerant. If you planted seeds, certainly all is well.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

I agree with camprn. If they happen to wilt a bit from the cold, they'll perk back up in a day or two.
