So yesterday, early in the morning, we had snow flurries. Big, beautiful snowflakes which melted slowly as they fell to the ground. Lovely.
We rarely have snow, so even flurries are exciting. The temperature never fell below freezing, but tomorrow it is supposed to dip into the upper 20’s. SO. I ran outside and put out my frost covers over my spinach, kale, swiss chard, lettuces, arugula , watercress (which is growing amazingly well) radishes, parsley and beets which were barely visible in the ground.
I have to say I really like this frost cover. It is thinner and more lightweight than what I had bought at my local nursery in the past. AND the pegs are awesome. My only complaint is that the pegs come in packets of 10 and all of my areas and probably yours too, have FOUR corners. So, needless to say I was short a couple of pegs. Here is where I found them: http://www.heirloomseeds.com/supplies.htm
The nice thing about Texas weather is even though it is freezing cold this week, next week we may be back up into the 70’s. We just thaw out between our “cold spells”.
I also harvested my dill.
I used some in my fall arrangements. It worked beautifully.
Hopefully everthing will survive the freeze. Stay tuned.
