Frost Watch 2007 - Day 1
Bleeding heart - pretty picture interlude.
I hastily covered my row with a winter blanket. It got soggy in the rain and squashed the plants.
Tonight, the optimistic forecaster - the Weather Network - is calling for a low of 12C. The less optimistic one - Environment Canada - thinks 6C. I think the difference is in who is predicting for a clear night and who thinks rain.
I've covered the bed with some foamy packaging material, and the polytunnel support with some light weight plastic, weighted down with soil. Tomorrow I have to get the real heavy duty stuff. I will also be adding a second layer of protection.
Stay tuned. I'll post pictures.
