Effect of cold weather on planted tomatoes
I am in Savannah, GA. I planted my tomatoes on March 26 - 2 weeks after the last frost date. Since then we have not had frost, but cool, rainy, cloudy weather - almost no sun so the plants have been wet a lot. The temp dropped to 44 last night and is expected to be in the 40s most nights thru the weekend (today is Wednesday). I have covered them at night, but of course that doesn't help much with the temps and just keeps them damp. Does anyone know if and how this will affect my tomatoes? Should I cover them at night or leave them open so they can dry out?
