Hello - newbie here from Yorkshire!
« on: April 25, 2024, 14:15 »
Hello everyone - just joined this forum.  We recently moved back to North Yorkshire and our new home has four raised beds and a greenhouse and keen to carry on from the previous owners in growing our own veg.  We have fruit trees too. 

I have just planted courgette and red pepper seeds in the greenhouse and sown carrots, cabbage, kohl rabi, radishes, beets and some courgette seeds outside.  Do I need to cover all these?

Welcome to the forum  :)
I'd actually bring the peppers and courgettes indoors, onto a windowledge perhaps, until this cold spell is over, and perhaps fleece the outside stuff?
I'm in Kent and my greenhouse went a bit under 3C last night, which is too cold, and presume your weather is a bit colder than here?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new house / garden.

Yes, definitely too cold for peppers and tomatoes outside or probably even overnight in an unheated greenhouse. We can get frost overnight until end of May easily.

I would not put cabbage outside without it being under cover to stop the pigeons (and, in due course, the cabbage white butterflies) from attacking the plants.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
