Question of the Week: Cold Injury

Last week the question was:  What happened to this collard plant?

This field of collards was badly injured by the recent cold weather.  The temperature was in the lower 20’s for a couple nights in a row with high winds and it was a little more than these plants could handle.  We’ve lost a lot of marketable leaves, though new leaves that emerge in more favorable weather won’t be affected.

 

Here is this week’s question:  Why are these strawberry plants so small when they were planted at the proper time and fertilized properly?
