Miniscule frost damage on my 541 plant. This was the one I pulled out and replanted.

I also lost one patch of corn, and some potato plants. The thermometer on my porch says it was 38 last night. But there was ice on my vehicle this morning! The radient heat loss dropped things below freezing.

Damage to the 1133 was 100% preventable, the plastic covers are still lying on the ground. That, or irrigation, either would have been enough. The bit of plastic over the stump preserved those leaves perfectly even though its not an enclosed space it prevented radiant heat loss in that area.

Anyhow, now we'll see what the 1133 Yohe can do with one arm tied behind its back.

Cover your plants Gads & Elaine, it might be you guys next...
