I get a lot of questions about what this will do to our crops. So far I’m really only worried about our vegetable seed crops that were planted in the fall. We have both cabbage & swiss chard that is still pretty small and not looking too happy with this cold weather. I am told not to worry too much until 12 degrees, we have gotten down to 14 so far, hopefully that is the lowest we get!
Just another reason why being a farmer is truly so risky, no one can control the weather, and no one can tell you what is going to happen. Would we have changed our planting schedule last fall if we had known this was going to happen…probably so! But once again (I feel like I say this a lot) that’s farming!
Happy Friday folks and stay warm!
