The cold weather is coming

Frost Garden

Protect your garden

After our gorgeous autumn so far, it looks like cold weather is finally upon us. There is some light snow forecasted for tonight, as well as below-zero temperatures for Saturday and Sunday night.

You should harvest any sensitive veggies like tomatoes or basil and cover the garden for the next three nights with your floating row cover or a light sheet. To make things easier, you can leave your cover on until Monday. Temperatures are comfortably above zero for the next two weeks at least, so with a little protection you can keep your garden producing.

For more info, you can call in to Radio Noon today at 12:30. I will be on answering fall vegetable gardening questions. 514-597-4500 with your end of season gardening questions. See you on the radio!
