Hope for spring in subfreezing temps!


Late last summer I started some cold weather crops, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, etc. We had hoped to have something for Christmas but with the cool weather they just didn’t do much. In fact after Thanksgiving, they were still small and I figured maybe in the spring we’d have something.

We’ve had really cold weather this week. It was 12 here this morning and for South Carolina, that’s very, very cold. I peaked outside and happened to look down and wow, we maybe WILL have an early spring crop! I saw growing plants and tiny heads of broccoli. I’ll be shocked if they survive the cold but right now it’s looking good!
