Looks like I might have to cover up what’s left of the garden just to be safe tonight. The forecast low is 41 with clear skies. While this is unlikely to cause a frost, if their forecast is a bit off and it goes into the upper 30s, it could certainly hurt what is left of the frost-intolerant plants. I’m not going to take the chance. This appears to be the only night in the 10 day forecast that is going below 45, and our average first frost isn’t until the end of the month, but a frost this time of year is certainly not unheard of. If nothing else, a cool night will help along the apples and foliage that benefit from such conditions. I’m not seeing any colors on the trees yet, but expect to start seeing some changes soon. Forecast high is 67 and sunny. Not bad!
