Hello everyone! A few weeks ago most of us got in on the snow. We sure did, got about 3 inches if not more. Our cabbage, onions, and broccoli didn’t mind the cold spell. The peppers on the other hand didn’t like it at all. Good thing is we didn’t have very many planted, only 10 plants.
We had spent the day preparing our tomatoes in the high-tunnel, covered our fruit trees to save them from the bitter cold. I was under the impression that peppers could withstand a little cold, but this one was a bit extreme I guess. Although they looked pretty in the snow, the next couple days proved that it got too cold for them, as they began to frown and droop. In all there was one tough one in the bunch. It made it through and is doing great. It’s all alone right now, but not for long. We are going to replace the frozen ones this week.
The tomato’s and fruit trees are doing great too. We had them covered and closed up so they stayed comfy and warm. We should almost be out of any danger of the cold; we are going to hold off another week before planting any delicates outside. I think this week is dogwood winter, and then blackberry winter then we should be good.
Happy Planting & God Bless!
