Freeze warning

Post  TCgardening on 2/19/2015, 9:45 pm

Freeze warning, not something we often see down here. Work kept me late so going to hope the frost stays a bit farther west of me. The tomatoes have finally started producing & the beans are at the top of the trellis. Funny is I think today is our last frost date. Camping at Rainbow Springs SP this weekend so I'll hope for the best when we get home.

I was actually kind of worried about this.  I saw something that said bring your pets and plants inside....I don't have outside pets, but I was wondering if I should actually be worried about my potted veggie plants that are on the patio.

The coldest weather stayed to the west, only dropped to 41 here. Hope the farmers were spared from the frost as well. I remember the damage from the big freeze in the early 80s. Dead citrus trees for as far as you could see.

 If it was supposed to freeze or frost at your place then yes you would either cover your plants or bring the potted plants inside. Of coarse bringing them in means bringing all the ants that live in the pots inside also. Your patio could also protect the plants some from the coldest temps.
How cold did it get at your place?

I live in the Wellignton/Royal Palm area.  I'm not sure the coldest it got, the coldest I saw was 49.  I didn't bring anything in or cover it, but it all looked ok this morning.  They were like, screw your cold, we're veggies!  I dunno.  They looked fine.  I only double layered myself to walk the dogs at like 2 am so I"m sure it didn't get too bad.  But we are a bit west (also a bit south) from you. 
How'd you fare up there?

We were camping at Rainbow Springs State Park over the weekend. Friday saw a low of 32 and Saturday a low of 39. Glad that wasn't my gardens low temp, our place saw a low of 41 far from what the weather man said we  would expect. No frost damage at our garden and happy to see some summer squash developing.
 Hope to have a productive garden this year.
