Early Morning Hard Frost

At 4:00 am the thermometer read 29 frosty degrees outside.  It was a perfect time to test our extended season frost covers that we used to cover our tomatoes, beans & lettuce.

Next morning after sunrise the results were in. Our tomatoes made it with only slight leaf burn. The beans were toast; dead before sunrise. The lettuce plants appeared to be frozen when I looked at them early in the morning. However, by noon all lettuce plants appeared fine.

The seven-day forecast for our area is sunny – 70 degree days with nights and early mornings in the high 40’s.

Our surviving plants can flourish for at least another week.
