Freezing temps are coming for 3 nights!
I still have onions, peppers, potatoes, broccoli and peanuts growing in the garden. I got a really late start this year because I broke my wrist in March and didn't get any kind of strength/motion back in my wrist/hand until June, so I couldn't plant the garden until June 17.
I am not really worried about my onions, broccoli or potatoes, but for my peanuts and peppers I am definitely worried.
Luckily we have had warmer temps here in Connecticut and the plants are still doing fine, BUT Saturday night through Monday night, we will have freezing temps at night - between 27 and 32 degrees for 3 nights in a row! Then we go back up to 60s during the day and 40s at night.
But my peanuts and peppers are not ready for harvesting yet. Thanks to the stupid pepper maggot fly, I lost most of my peppers early on and now I have a bunch of new peppers that are doing great, but these temps are coming! And the peanuts are still growing new leaves.
These plants will die from these temps right? Should I just harvest everything now or is there anything I can do? For instance, can I go out and buy some cheap sheets and cover them? Is there any special way to cover them? Or that just won't work and I should harvest now? I hate to harvest now since temps go back up next week.
What would you all do???? Please help with advice, thank you!
