Baby It's COLD Outside!
At 8 AM this morning it was a brisk 4 degrees outside! That means it was a little colder at 7 AM.!! The temperature in the cold frames was a nice warm 31! I looked at the cold frame thermometer at 6 AM and it was 30.
That's not a bad temperature. It seems like the cold frame temperatures stay more consistent when there is snow on them. I have noticed on days when the temperatures are more normal, the cold frames stay about 37 with the snow on them. When there is no snow, the temperatures can fluctuate from the high 20's at night and can go as high as the 60's during the day when the sun is shining on them. I really try to pay attention and open them on sunny days to keep the temperatures lower.
