This was going to be a post about Frost. The season’s first finally moved in on Friday night and we awoke to a mild, but pretty frost.
However, Sunday morning rolled around and- much to our shock- so did the first snow of the year. It’s so far only stuck to plants and trees. But this, folks, is EARLY! The average first snowfall is not until the first weeks of November. I feel a certain amount of vindication of my theory that winter would come hot on the heels of our first frost, but this is a bit of overkill.
Surely (one hopes) the temperatures will bounce back to something more Autumnal in a few days time, but this is a surefire reminder that our time in the garden is numbered. Best to get out there while we can!
