Good thing I don’t have any tropical trees I need to cover.
The garden is planted with cold-hardy crops like turnips, cabbage, peas and daikons, though 26 degrees may be on the edge for some of them, according to this post.
“Colder temperatures (26-31 degrees F.) may burn foliage but will not kill broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, chard, lettuce, mustard, onion, radish, and turnip.”
Since it’s been moderately warm, a dip this low is not great. Though some plants will handle cold temperatures, they are much worse at handling cold temperatures after warm ones. At least it’s been in the 40’s overnight lately.
I have a few potted trees to bring inside, along with some lemongrass starts, but I don’t think I’ll do anything to protect the main gardens. It’s too much space to cover and too much trouble. Hope they make it.
