We had 4" of snow. It was heavy, wet snow and freezing rain in intervals- very icy. I'm glad I covered the plants. In the yard I can walk across the frozen crust on the snow without breaking through. Went out there yesterday when the weather was a bit milder and uncovered a few to check-
When it's a bit warmer at 35° I feel ok to put out in the coldhouse the tomato, marigold and nasturtium seedlings. At 40° I'll put out the celosia, sweet potato cuttings, and the tray of herbs. Okra, celosia, peppers and basil seem more tender- they wait until it's 55°. But it would be so much easier if I knew the actual temp inside my coldhouse, so I'm going to look for one to hang. With big fat numbers so I can read it from the kitchen window.
