"I think that we've seen the last sub-freezing temperatures of the season. "
That was my statement last Monday, after we received what I thought would be our last frost of the year. Ah, but Mother Nature is a sneaky old gal, and she played a trick on all of the early bird gardeners last night. When I checked the thermometer at 06:00 this morning, it was 31° Fahrenheit! I looked outside, and, sure enough, there were patches of frost dotting the landscape. It wasn't a "freeze," but it was frosty enough that the tender annuals were zapped! (Thank god that I'm a procrastinator, our tomatoes were nestled snugly on the sun porch!)
...and now (once again) I can safely say that "we've seen the last sub-freezing temperatures of the season"...I think.
