Cold Frame Crop Survival

Just a reminder that if you’re going to keep those cool weather crops thriving – it’s time to make certain that your secondary plastic covers are in place, ready to protect your precious crops from the brutal weather conditions that come with winter.

I have found that my cool weather crops (lettuce, chard, spinach, carrots, radishes, and even my beets!) survive beautifully with a second protective covering of plastic positioned over them inside the greenhouse. My greenhouse is a cold frame, with no special cooling or heating currently in place – so special care is taken to keep the crops growing (and thus harvested!).

Chat with me about your growing solutions in the face of winter, and how you have handled the cold.
