Growth in Snow April 27, 2012
We got a skiff of snow temperatures were down to 30 degrees during the day.
Here is a picture of 4 test peppers plants. I planted these on April 20, 2012. Six weeks before our average last frost date.
These plants had a few leaves that were bit but the plants recovered quickly.
You can see I had 3 sandwhich bags filled with water inside the protector. This acted as a heat sink, soaking in heat and energy during the day and releasing it into the protectors as the temperature dropped. This is a Jalapeno pepper plant it is the only plant that I had the water bags in. The other three plants had 3-5 leaves die but this one only had one leaf die.
