Gardening That Grows With Me

Frost Ready – Again

Frost covers tomatoes & peppersI don’t care what the calendar says or what the weather was like yesterday, you can always count on a good chance of frost in southern Ontario even into the end of May. Having said that, I always jump the gun and put my tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and basil in during an early hot spell, only to have to cover them up again and this year is no different. Last weekend we were working in temperatures in the high 20’s, tonight it’s going down to 2C. Gotta love Canada.

Luckily I have a good supply of quick frost covers at hand including floating row covers, mini greenhouses and plastic cloches accumulated over the years. So bring it on mother nature, I’m ready!
