Yard and Garden Journal 5/8/2017 Frost Advisory

Everything (or nearly so) is sheltered in the garage for the night.   Currently it is ~12:45am and the temp outside is 35F; forecast is that it could drop to freezing sometime between now and just before sunup.  Frost was not in the forecast until AFTER I did some potting earlier in the day.  We don't have any tender annuals in the ground yet; I used to have stuff in the gardens by mid-April but just got plain tired of covering everything with sheets of plastic every time there was a chance of frost.  Last year (or maybe the year before) we decided to abide by the rule that nothing goes into the ground until after Mother's Day.

The general rule here is Memorial day! Though I've pushed it a bit when the forcasts look good or I know I"m going to have time to keep everything covered as need be.

It was bloody cold for the Cubs last night I see. But, that's Spring in Chi land as I remember it. Always seemed to get a few like this in May when I was a kid

Hey there Ruth. How you been feeling? Maybe a nice stretch of warm weather will speed your healing ...


Good to hear from ya!

Heh, yeah Joesph, a spring baseball game in Chicago is sometimes cold enough to end up in a snowball fight.

It has been a good spring so far; not too bad at all.
