Yesterday morning we woke to a frosty landscape. Out of curiosity or perhaps just plain laziness, I decided to not cover the gardens the previous evening though the temperature was forecast to drop to 32 degrees F. When I reviewed the garden in the morning I had reason for concern. The parsley was definitely not happy and while the peas, lettuce and kale seemed in decent form, they were still covered with ice crystals. I was therefore happy to see when returning at lunch that everything had recovered very well.
I started more tomatoes and lettuce in micro-blocks and moved the sprouted basil under the lights. Parsley in the tray went out on the back porch this morning to make room for more micro-blocks under the lights.
