We’re transitioning into frosty mornings, so we’ve now started covering the field tomatoes and peppers so they keep producing until they are finally killed off with a hard frost. The first layer of protection we add is row cover, which gives us a few degrees of heat retention. When we see projected nightly temperatures crossing below 32F we’ll start to pull down the greenhouse film we have secured to the tops of our low tunnels, and that will give us another few degrees of heat retention. Together those coverings allow us to keep tomatos/peppers/eggplant/ground cherries going until a hard frost at 28F or below. Everything else we have planted tolerates light frosts and we’ll only start covering when the hard frosts hit. We included fresh potatoes in the share this week, which haven’t been cured, so their skin is delicate. We hope you’re enjoying this fall weather, and have a great week!
