First frost

Not a whole lot but enuff to turn the grass quite crisp in places. Guess it's a sign of more to come.

Frost yesterday in lower lying areas of my yard, though nothing was harmed and a warm forecast ahead with no frost expected for awhile ... hope we can again go well into October!

It was zero here this morning, so a lot of tender plants are done. Hopefully I took slips of everything I hoped to keep.

I'm in Vermont and we had strips of frost on the ground this morning. Enough to zap the tops of my huge coleus and finish off about half my cucumbers. The tomatoes had some sheets on them and I haven't dared look.

We have a frost warning for tonight, but the forecast is for +2. Everything covered, just in case.

I am in mid-Minn. and we have mild freezes with high twenties for the next two days.
I cover my tomatoes and heavily watered the extremely dry garden hoping to get through the worst nights as over night temps are supposed be above freezing after the next two days.

Brrr! Officially -7 C here but our backyard recorded -12 C this morning. All the tender crops are toast (no point in covering them at this point) but the swiss chard shrugged it off.

On Wednesday night, they had been calling for lows just above freezing, though it was much colder than forecast and because I was away that evening, I was unable to bring anything in other than these Alstroemeria and a wisteria bloom next to the house. Let me count, it's now "only" 8 1/2 months until the 'Blue Moon' wisteria is again in full flower, sigh! Well, let's just hope for a nice autumn and a repeat of last winter's very mild conditions :)
