Battling frost with water

Farmers in Schuylkill County used their irrigation system to try to protect their crops

RINGTOWN, Pa. — Farmers in Schuylkill County used water in an effort to save crops on their farm.

B & R Farms in Ringtown posted a Facebook video of their efforts when the temperature got down to 28 degrees Thursday morning.

"This is our attempts to save the strawberries, save the asparagus, save the new strawberry field we just planted," said Robin Hetherington on the video. "Sorry, I'm jerky, haven't had coffee yet!"

The hope was that the water would save all those plants from the freeze.
