Resilient Organic Subsistence Farming in the Deep South
Podcast #230 – A Wicked Late Freeze
It was a long, hard winter. Then we loved the spring warming. Then WHAM! – winter was back.
Tuesday night of this week, the temperature hovered below freezing for nine hours, reaching a low Wednesday morning of 26 degrees F before slowly ascending. The results for us are a mixed bag. The strawberries came through fine, perhaps because they were so close to the ground and therefore stayed warmer. The pears got hit hard, as did the blueberries. The persimmons came through fine, but the figs suffered. The plums seem okay. You get the idea.
