Should I cover berries again tonight?
I don't think it got as cold last night as they predicted - I didn't get up til 6am, but it was 38 then and I don't believe temp rose 6 degrees in 1 hour as soon as the sun came up (sensor is in the shade) and there was no frost on the ground. it's 8:30 and 53* now. I uncovered the blueberries that were blossoming (had covered with buckets, tubs and insulated curtains) when I went out with DD 45 minutes ago but left the old sheets around the cages on the other blueberries, the burlap over the brambles, and the tarps over the strawberry hoops (in the shade). Heading out to take the tarps and burlap off now.
But since the strawberries are blossoming, should I leave the straw/hay on them for today (high might get to 60) and maybe pull the tarps back over the hoops tonight (low again 37 or so)? After tonight lows should be in the 40's and then 50's so we'll be home free.
