Hi. I planted our garden last weekend. Normally we are safe in Wisconsin at this point, and the extended forecast had 50 lows for the week. This morning, it changed to 37F for Thursday. Friday is 44F, and Sat is 49F. Starting sunday it shows lows in the 50s and 60s. My question is will the 37F be an issue? If so, What will I need to do?

What will the daytime temps be? 37 is not good, but if it is only for a short period then you might be okay. My recommendation is to move south 馃お

I planted early and we had a near freeze. Set up stakes to keep plastic off plants. Ground heat keep it in the 50s under the plastic.

highs of 62F today, 66F on Thurs, 73F on Fri, 78F on Sat, and 80 on Sun
I always break out the moving blankets with short wood stakes as tents to keep off the plants. Hold the ground heat in. Had to do it two days this year when it got down to 33掳F.
