Freezing Temperatures and Frost Protection
After a few days of beautiful spring weather, it looks like we are expecting one more wintry-ish round of weather. I’m seeing predicted lows of 33, 29, and 30 for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights respectively. Because it has been a fairly cold (and getting later) spring, there isn’t a whole lot that needs protection. Most of your cool season garden vegetables shouldn’t have any trouble tolerating those temperatures unless they have just been transplanted outside. Most fruit trees (with the possible exception of apricots and some peaches, perhaps) are not in full bloom yet. I suppose they might be with two more days of warm weather.
If you have some blooming plants or vegetables that you want or need to protect from freezing temperatures, here is a great article from The Garden Professors blog about how to do that effectively (and why it works): Protecting Plants from Frost.
