Results of Using Frost Cloth in Jax Beach
Hey, plant pals. Greg here with an update on the results of using frost cloth in Jax Beach!
Remember that chilly snap we had? It wasn’t quite a freeze like they predicted, but I decided to test out the frost cloth anyway. And guess what? It worked like a charm!
We had wind and rain, and the cloth held up beautifully. Even with some areas not fully covered, most of the plants under the fabric, including my beloved cilantro and dill, came through unscathed. A few nasturtiums on the outside edge seemed a little worse for wear, but overall, two big thumbs up for frost cloth!
This raised bed with the cabbage, collards, and fancy red romaine lettuce? All are thriving under the cloth’s cozy protection. So happy!
I know what you’re thinking: “Greg, can I trust just your word on this? Where’s the science?” Well, that’s the beauty of gardening, friends. It’s all about learning by doing, experimenting, and sharing tips. So next time a frost threatens your precious green babies, try frost cloth! Just remember:
- Cover those plants well! Every leaf and stem deserves cozy warmth.
- Secure the fabric like your life depends on it. Wind is the enemy. We construct custom raised beds like this with easy frost cloth posts to attach to.
- Water your plants before tucking them in. Dry soil doesn’t hold heat as well.
- Uncover when the danger’s passed. Don’t smother your friends!
And there you have it! Greg’s guide to success using frost cloth in Jax Beach. So keep frost cloth on hand for colder temperatures, get creative, and protect those precious veggies. Also See Part One HERE.
