Frost Hardy

So I was expecting a slight scene of devastation after the chilly weekend: but in fact that frost seems to have done less damage than the one a couple of weeks ago which killed off all the French beans. The few remaining red salad bowl and little gem lettuces out in the field are fine and unscathed; even the nasturtium leaves that had regrown from the frost before don’t look at all bothered. The crops in the tunnels are fine (though I was never too worried about them really) – although I did think that the tomatoes and peppers would have been a bit unhappy about the temperatures. But no: the peppers are nice and firm, glossy and yummy still. Despite that, I think I am going to have to clear that tunnel out by the end of the week: the next lot of salads are keen to get going!
