Archives for posts with tag: Frost sensitive

The earlier starts are faring well in the mini greenhouse – herbs, lettuce and brassica.

Now it’s time for starting different kinds of pumpkins and squash, along with cucumbers, sweet corn, sunflowers and other frost sensitives. 

These trays are all full of dirt and seeds. When they start germinating they will have to go outside for more light. The mini green house will not hold them all (I’ll have to make another next winter), but I can put the rest in frames that can be covered with plastic, when it gets cold, as I’ve done before. 

We can have cold nights here until the first week of june. Then the plants should be a good size and hardy enough for planting out in the crop circles. 

We had a tinge of frost last week, but very little damage. Corn plants got it worst. 

Last night was worse with major damage. 

A little bit of covering helps, but predictions say more to come, so it’s time to take in everything that is sensitive.
