Frost preparations!


The weather just continues to keep us guessing. If you have any tender plants – such as hanging baskets, warm season annuals planted in the ground, or baskets or other containers outside – you should bring them into the garage or be prepared to cover them. The forecast shows light frost for southern Minnesota.

I brought all of my containers in except for two that I can’t move. I will cover these with a sheet late afternoon. Cool season vegetables like brocolli and cabbage can typically handle a light frost – but if you’re covering things up – why chance it.
