Cold Temperatures and Chilling Injury

We have a complex weather forecast coming this weekend. North of Hwy 20 through Iowa and Illinois they are calling for the possibility of getting 2-8” of snow for tomorrow. The lows for Saturday and Sunday are in the range of the mid-20’s with rain potential every day. Most of next week appears to have highs in the mid to lower 50’s and lows in the upper 30’s to low 40’s.

With this weather forecast in mind, we strongly encourage you to park your planters this afternoon until this weather moves through Cornelius Country.
