Close call last night - down to 34 degrees. The forecast was for 36, but it got colder than that. I've got an indoor/outdoor thermometer & even with the cold frame sealed up & a flood light left on it still went to 34 inside. If needed, I'll use a heat lamp the next time. It looks like the next few nights will just be into the 40s, so no worries there. Everything looks fine, even the tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and sweet potato slips. I hope everyone else is dong OK.

It got down to 25 under the hoops, but it looks like everything made it. One of my kale transplants has a little frost bite on the tips of the lower leaves, but otherwise everything looks great.

A few people and threads in our region reporting a close call last night.

I slept restlessly as I did not put the plastic on my hoops last night....silly boy....whats the point if i'm not going to use it eh. Forecast was 38 and my backyard hit 36. Somewhat of a close one but all fine here.

Here in Maryland it went down to 27°F last night. I covered everything with a big tarp, and they look like they all made it.

Tonight is supposed to go down to 29°F so I'll be covering everything again. The day I'm concerned about is Sunday when It's supposed to go down to 25°F. We'll see what happens.

It's supposed to get below freezing tonite here in central OK, so I have put my cover back over my raised bed. I only have onion sets in because it has been too windy and cold lately. I should have done something while it was spring like.

Haha this one made me laugh......Smile

You people are so brave to live in places like Minnesota! We once went through the state on our vacation in July... the bugs were unbearable. Then, you have double digit negative temps in Winter!! Wow.

I must say most people down here (including me) are pretty wimpy with our weather hardiness in comparison to you people up there.

Heh, just finished bringing in my repotted seedlings. Supposed to hit 34 tonight, and I am very glad I decided to repot instead of risking putting them in the beds. I just knew we would have one last cold spell.

Got down to 26.9 here......yeh yeh call it 27. But, everything looked great when I peeked in tonight. And, I felt some warm air hit me in the face when I opened up the hoops, too. I wanted to climb inside and take a siesta.

Tonight is supposed to do the same. We'll see.
