seedlings in the snow

MyLittleRakeApril 13, 2014

I planted snow peas, spinach, carrots and lettuce about 2 -4 weeks ago and they have sprouted into little seedlings. It started snowing in the middle of the night last night and has continued throughout the day. Forecast is snow all night with a low of 20 degrees. I didn't cover these little babies with anything. Will they survive? There is a think blanket of snow over them now. Is there anything I can do at this point to protect them? I took a look at the snow peas and they seem like they are doing fine. Thanks

When this happens to me I either throw something over them (an old sheet works well) or move them into my garage.

Still in containers or in the ground?
If they are in their containers I don't see why they wouldn't survive.
