Re: Letting most of the garden go

Message from Jim in Iowa

Thats a good question,there are some things that
will go downhill fast if it stays below 15F but plenty of stuff
that can supposedly take -20F to -10F,maybe I should test that

Some of it depends on how cold it gets this winter,we can
usually count on negative temps at some point but in 2012
I think the low was 2F here ...so in that kind of winter might
see a lot of stuff pull through eventually...usually in severe
cold the sun is out so it would warm substantially but it is
the cloudy cold days that could see it stay below freezing
for significant amounts of time and that can be worse than
absolute cold temps...
