average first 32F frost for my area is Sept 26 and 28F is Oct 2 according to the NDSU Extension Service. That makes the 26F predicted low VERY early.
A couple of days ago I posted some options for protecting plants from frost and here is what I did.
1. Watered my garden well yesterday.
2. Place black milk jugs filled with water among my tender plants.
3. Covered everything I want to save WELL (I hope!).
4. Even covered my topsy turvey Tiny Tim tomatoes.
Here is to hoping that tonight is warmer than predicted and my garden is protected.
Happy Gardening! :}
