The Cover Up

Tuesday, the Sunday of the week at Sweetwater, the farmers and the Associate Director, Yvette, got called in to quickly cover up some veggies.  Even though we didn’t have a “hard freeze” some crops are not tolerant of colder temperatures and light frosts.

The greenhouse is now decked out in a plastic cover to protect the tender seedlings growing inside and to trap more heat from the day’s sun.  In the fields, the crew covered the mature lettuce heads (photo below) to prevent the leaves from severe damage due to frost that can kill the plant.
