Mr. Weatherman, I watched you last night and you didn’t mention frost! Our average is mid-October, so this is close enough to be sure. But we’ve never seen frost so early, and the forecast had temps around 38-40 F. Well, we bordered 32-33 degrees this morning, with frost all around. Thankfully the ground was still warm enough in many areas to protect a few plants, but our car mirror and windows were covered in icy-frozen water drops. It’s too early!
I see that tonight’s forecast has changed, with the low around 29 degrees F. That means we need to move and cover a few plants, and say goodbye to the beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and squash. Harumph! I hoped for a couple more weeks of fresh veggies…
We did awake to sunshine as a bright welcome after so much rain. It’s going to be a beautiful, busy day!
