Keeping them warm.

Keeping them warm.

Late last night on return,i took no chances and moved back into the seedroom,some of the young vegetable plants.Though well covered in the greenhouse,still i feared the worst after the other weather damage.Seed Potatoes [Solanum tuberosa] have been checked on also.

What all have you growing?

Are they cabbage plants?

John, I do hope all of the above seedlings won't be lost. Looking bad for sure.

Hope you will have saved them John.

Best of luck with them John.

Liga is correct Cloncaw,they are Cabbage plants.Along with them also another Brassica,[All the year round]Cauliflower.

Thanks Jacinta.It is good and bad so far with them.Almost a tray so far gone into the compost heap since the last journal,but still some holding well.

Some of the plants are doing well Myrtle,thanks.Others have headed for the happy hunting ground in the compost heap.

Hoping for the best,Clara thanks.I checked in the greenhouse earlier this morning and some of the Winter Lettuce are frozen solid and they inside a double layer of glass and straw.They will recover as they are able to take a low reading and survive.

Thanks Fran.We have to fight this type of weather expected in late Jan-Feb,but not this late in the previous year.
