Question about covering garden while gone for weekend

Post  DoreenPalmer on 4/29/2014, 8:58 am

Not sure if this is the right place to ask since this is my first time posting. I live in upstate NY and have been covering my garden every night. I am going away this weekend, the temperature is only supposed to get down to 40 degrees at night. Do you think it will be ok to leave garden uncovered for weekend? I don't have anyone to come and cover it every night so that is why I am asking.

Hi Doreen!   smiles Welcome!

I'm sure someone from your area will answer shortly, but I'd think they would be okay if 40's the low.

What do you have planted?

Have a good time on your trip!

Thank you, I am going to see my grandbaby. I planted peas, carrots, beets, kale, onion, that is all I remember.

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

Some of those can even be frozen and be fine. My onions and brussels sprouts and daikon survived 8 degrees and a week at around 25 degrees.
