CULT: covered and uncovered rows, overview

  • Subject: CULT: covered and uncovered rows, overview

In the photo only showing 2 rows, the row on the right is the one that
was covered. Before the freeze, both rows had pretty much the same
overall appearance.

The other photo was taken from the other end of the rows, so the covered
row is on the far left.

I always leave weeds in the rows until irises actually start blooming to
provide a tiny bit of frost protection (keeps them from warming up quite
as fast, plus shelters the bases of the plants a bit from frost. Wasn't
much help with this one - even the chickweed was partially killed!
