I just squeaked by last night at 2 degrees and I didn't cover the tenders. So sad just started harvesting beans and zucs. Cucs are not going to produce this year. Going out to cover beans now. Cheryl

Way too early! I'm hoping for at least another month before frost, but it does become a threat from here on.

The computer says, its 8 degrees outside, the thermometer in the garden is reading 2. I would love to get another month, my fall lettuce is just starting to get nice. Think I will leave the tenders covered if we go anywhere over night just to be safe. C

It was 0 C at 6am in the 108 Mile Ranch (BC Cariboo) so I guess they were right, full moon does it every time! Lucky I covered my beans last night!

Here last night we had a heck of a big thunderstorm, and after being at 32C during the day yesterday, it went down to 13 overnight. None of the F word forecast and we're supposed to run around normal for the next couple of weeks (so they say now). I'm hoping i can get some ripe tomatoes this summer, and maybe some cucumbers. There was one ready today, and my granddaughter looked at it so longingly that i sent it home with her. :) Trouble is, that was the only one! LOL

Well it turns out I did notice some limpy leaves even with the covers on, so before 6am it must have been colder than 2 degrees. Just went out to recover and darn it's chilly, man I long for those hot true summer nights of my youth. C
