Environment Canada’s forecast has not looked good for outdoor gardens for the last couple of days, and it is looking worse. A low of zero now predicted. I’ve noticed the weather reports from the Mackenzie Valley communities have been showing dropping temps. Whatever is coming is coming from the north east it appears.
I’ll be bringing what I can inside, big stuff will go into the greenhouse, and covering up what has sprouted in the raised beds and planters by Friday evening (maybe sooner). Hopefully, the weather will be revised and/or the lows will be fleeting as they often are at this time of year.
Check out the forecast.
