Row Covers

Temps hit 8 degrees last night, but it was still quite comfortable inside the high tunnel when I stopped by this morning. The plastic row covers help stabilize the temperature over the plants, keeping them warm enough during our cold nights. It was 71.3 under the plastic mid-morning today. Bill said temps hit 103 under the covers on Monday--astounding after 6+ inches of snow and wind we got the day before. Needless to say, he is monitoring and pulling them back when necessary.
