It Froze

The freeze came last night.  Down to 25 degrees Fahrenheit   Many plants are done like this green sweet potato vine.

The patio containers had just enough protection that only a few leaves look nipped.

Tomatoes, peppers, squash---done.
The lettuce, kohlrabi and carrots are good.  

Warmer weather returns tomorrow.  Hoping to enjoy a mild fall for clean up in the garden.


  1. It got pretty cold here last night too, although I didn't check the exact temperature. Glad I got my hoses unhooked yesterday.

  2. Oh no! We knew it was just a matter of time. I myself am embracing the change of seasons....maybe not 25 degrees though.

  3. Hi there-we just hit Nebraska on our way home and was very surprised to see SNOW. Sorry about your plants, but you seem to be right on top of things--getting prepared. Hope you get your warm up so you can get the cleanup started. Have a wonderful week!

  4. Oh no!! Too soon - it went down to the 40's here. I haven't re-potted my geraniums yet for the winter, I hope the rain ends and I can get outside tomorrow on my day off to take care of them.

  5. Today was our coolest day so far, but nothing to compare with your temps. Your patio plants still look wonderful.

  6. I think the garden is winding down for many. I have a ton of green tomatoes that I picked yesterday. Today, I harvested the last of the greenbeans & peppers before the frost hits. Hope you had a successful growing season!

  7. Yup. .we got to 27 degrees. .done!! Glad I got some cuttings and one purple fountain grass repotted for the greenhouse. .The coneflowers, maximillin sunflowers and mums still look ok. . maybe flowers for a few more weeks yet!

  8. We had a freeze too. My roses look like they are frozen in bloom with tissue paper petals that could crack and fall. Cold here this morning..the down comforter is on.
