Frost Advisory and the Garden
So, I write this, post it, and we get a frost Wednesday night. On the up side, the weather app I have on my iPad notified me of the frost warning, so we covered as much of it as we could with plastic.
You can't really see it in the picture, but I took this early Thursday morning, and the sheet of plastic is frosted.
When I first went outside Thursday morning to milk the goats, I looked at it, and it was still just wet. I also checked a few leaves, and they were wet.
An hour or so later, and frost over everything, this is shortly after sunrise.
I snapped a few pictures with my phone, sadly, I don't think you can really see the frost on the leaves in them.
I have high hopes that there was no permanent damage. It was a light frosting on everything, and not long-lasting, as the sun was up when I took these pictures, and all the frost was gone very shortly after.
Something else I noticed was, the peppers, which I didn't manage to get covered for the most part, all appeared to have no frost.
