Day 2 of Cold monday!
Yesterday morning there was a big frost. It is very important to have some ways to protect plants, We light some home made special kind of sawdust efficient stoves that use very little fuel (wood) and the exhaust is almost smoke free (the stoves have a smoke trap).
All along the vegetable garden and fruit trees area we deploy the stoves every 12 to 20 ft. They are made with 1 gal tin cans and they release heat into the surrounding air almost at ground level, where you find the coldest air. The heated air mixes with cold air as it flows up. What is done is to create warmer microclimatic conditions for the plants to not suffer a frost.
That was an almost a day long labor. This post is yesterdays but published today. Later on I will write today's post
