Frost this week?

Yikes! I just looked at the forecast for this week and it looks like frost is possible on Thursday! Any more information on whether this is likely?

Hard to say...pockets of frost occur first in low lying areas. I'm up higher and frost holds off a bit. But my plants look like they've seen better days...the cold gets them before frost blackens them. The perennials and hardy annuals still look great! A little frost might drain the green from the leaves and give us a nice autumn show...very disappointing here this fall.

Yes, frost is predicted here for Thursday night. I've already started to pull potted plants inside: rosemary,pineapple sage, sweet olive....
The green tomatoes will be picked tomorrow and the plants pulled out and I'll harvest what basil is left. And bring in the cannas, fuchsia, agapanthus, fig, lemon tree and ???
