COLD SNAP TAKES PEPPERS, BASIL, EGGPLANT AND BEANS
We had our first night of upper 30 degree weather and I decided to take my chances and not cover anything. Unfortunately, the pole beans and peppers were taken out by just a few hours of not even freezing temperatures. I wasn't surprised as both vegetables are mainly summer crops and I felt extremely lucky to have had plentiful harvests from both.
The two eggplant plants also did not fair well. It's too bad because they both had fruit on them. I haven't pulled them up yet as my motto goes, "never give up", so I will wait it out and see if the fruit will continue to grow.
There were plenty of habenaeros and green beans to harvest before removing the plants but I left some green habeneros on one plant just to see if they will ripen.
