OK...cold is bad...but how cold is too cold?
Lots of us folks in the South are getting "caught with our pants down" this week. I've had my plants out for three weeks, and am not sure what Monday and Tuesday are going to bring this week. (One can only hope that it won't be TOO bad.)
Since my plants are in tubs, that complicates protecting them, and if the wind is blowing as predicted, covering probably is only going to provide little to no benefit anyway. As long as temps don't go below 32F, is that OK? Or, are mid-30 temps enough to stall growth and cause plants to sulk for a while?
I've never dealt with exceptionally cold temps with tomatoes before, as I've always set them out much later, in May. I'm looking forward to hearing from you more experienced growers who know what cooler nighttime temps can do to tomatoes, and at what point those temps become a problem.
Thanks so much!
