My poor garden. You wouldn’t know it to look at it today, but it has suffered much recently. Over the past weekend New England was plunged into Arctic temperatures, down to -9 with a windchill of -20. It was cold, the coldest it has been in more than 50 years!! AND, this weather descended only a few days after a day in which it reached 55 degrees, and then yesterday it climbed back into the 50s for a temperature swing of 70 degrees in two days. It is hard to make sense of it.
The weather pattern was not good for the garden. There is very little snow cover. The plants are bound to suffer winter kill, just how much I’ll know when they break dormancy in the spring. Even the weatherperson commented on how the Arctic cold and erratic weather was harmful to plants. I am glad I didn’t plant any woody plants this past fall. Hopefully all will survive and it will look like this again in a few months:
How are your gardens faring this winter?
