(Gallery) Severe freeze bites Georgia cole crops

A polar vortex dropped Southern temperatures dramatically last week. In some places, like in south Georgia, temperatures crashed to 20 degrees or below with a sharp wind chill, enough to bite hard some cabbage and broccoli fields.

According to Andrew Sawyer, University of Georgia Extension agent in Thomas County who blogs at Thomas County Ag, “Some fields were hit harder than others.”
