Nothing profound here. Maybe just a little surprising.
May 17th – we had frost on the ground this morning. Actually had quite heavy frost on the roofs. My wife reports that the plants in the garden appear to be doing ok.*
*Well, they’re doing ok, except for the ones that are being eaten by something. It’s either a chipmunk or some insect, and it appears to like dill, basil, green peppers, and mums.
The forecast for this evening suggests that we have at least one more night to be worried. As my great-grandma used to say (at least according to my grandma), any time the temperature is below 50 deg F by 9 pm, you could have frost. We plan on having things covered tonight.
