Protect your crops from the next frigid snap

 Buon Anno, Ortolani,

I hope your cold frames survived last week’s frigid blast; now it’s time to brace up for the next round, which should arrive tonight.  All my five cold frames fared well so far. Some of the more tender vegetation was a little limb one morning, but after the sun came up and warmed the chambers, they perked up and now are back to normal.

Since our next cold snap will be dipping to sub-zero, it’s wise to protect your frames by covering the tops with a heavy insulation (discarded carped underlay) and inserting a spotlight with a 100 watt clear incandescent bulb to make sure it stays above freezing inside the frame.

All this information is in my book, THE COMPLETE ORGANIC GARDEN, which is available from me, or through Amazon.com

 

Ci  risentiamo,
