What are “hot caps” in case you don’t already know.
A sudden frost can ruin a crop that has been a while in the making. We love repurpose projects no matter the size and in this diy you will learn how you young crop from a Spring frost using hot caps made from milk jugs. Have you ever seen those gigantic heater-fans on strawberry fields before? I have seen them throughout Oxnard, CA, as well as other fruit fields in my travels in that area of the country.
A lot of time and money goes into planting a new crop and the last thing a farmer wants is to lose them to a Spring frost. Well, this isn’t quite the same thing but its serves a similar purpose. If you have some old jugs or want to start collecting them now before you plant, it might be a good idea.
Our thanks to those farmers whose hard work hard to provide local food to their communities!
