Spring Plants  and cold temps? Empty Spring Plants and cold temps?

Post  scmelik 4/17/2011, 11:40 am

I have to get my peas, radishes and spinach transplanted soon but I am concerned about the weather I am having right now. For the next week they are talking about high being no higher than about 45 degree and chances of snow every day. If I plant today or tomorrow will I have to worry about them being to cold? I have done my best to harden them but they haven't got to spend much time outside since the wind has been howling like usual in South Dakota.

Those are all considered to be cool weather crops so they don't even mind the cool temps. Even a tiny bit of snow won't really hurt them. It may slow them down a bit but they should be fine. I would try it.

What are the nighttime temps? That's all I would be concerned about. 28F or below, and I would cover them. As long as daytime temps are above freezing and/or sunny, I wouldn't worry too much about them......though I'd have some kind of cover ready just in case.

As said, I wouldn't expect much growth until the temps get higher on a regular basis, but they shouldn't die, either.

our nightly temps are kind of all over the place, one night 27 then the next night 35. Hopefully after this week we will get some stability back and have spring again, lord knows it screwing up more than my gardening, my fishing is all screwed up too!!!!
