Frost Protection for Your Cool Weather Crops: Cups & Bags Make A Difference!

In Maryland Zone 7 we get the four full seasons of temperatures. We often get a period of great weather in February or March and think the frost is gone and spring is here, only to be hit be a deep freeze. You would think I would learn but I don't and I try to get plants out early. Yes... every year!

Your cool weather crops like; lettuces, spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower and peas can actually take a frost and a freeze into the upper 20's and survive. Now the cold can still damage them, so simple easy frost protection is always valuable. In this video,  I talk about 17 degree and 20 degree F nights that came back to back.  That is just too cold for newly planted transplants.

The freezes killed off my unprotected peas and lettuces but the plants that were covered by the rigid plastic cups survived nicely! I also used a large trash bag as a second layer of protection for one of my container planting of peas. Here is the method and proof it works.

  • This is a very joyful day of my life because of the help PRIEST Salami has rendered to me by helping me get my ex-husband back with his magic and love spell. I was married for 6 years and it was so terrible because my husband was really cheating on me and was seeking a divorce but when I came across PRIEST Salami email on the internet on how he helped so many people to get their ex back and help to fix relationships. and make people happy in their relationship. I explained my situation to him and then sought his help but to my greatest surprise, he told me that he will help me with my case and here I am now celebrating because my Husband has changed totally for good. He always wants to be by me and can not do anything without my presence. I am really enjoying my marriage, what a great celebration. I will keep on testifying on the internet because PRIEST Salami is truly a real spell caster.
