Plants battle frost

Mother Nature has been hitting crops in Door and Kewaunee Counties with everything she has this year with her most devastating blows still on the horizon. Snowflakes flew in Door and Kewaunee Counties over the weekend and some spots have already been affected by the season’s first frost. For some crops, it is just time to clean up for the year. Door County UW-Extension Agriculture Agent Annie Deutsch says there are some things you can do to protect your plants if putting them into pots and moving them indoors are not options.

Deutsch recommends you harvest what you can before the weather makes the decision for you, though she says apples can usually stay good on trees until temperatures reach 28 degrees and carrots actually get better with a frost.
