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.

 

The is the advisory found on WCCO Weather .. Frost Advisory from MON 1:00 AM CDT until MON 8:00 AM CDT…FROST ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 8 AM CDT MONDAY… * TEMPERATURE…Low to mid 30s. * IMPACTS…Sensitive vegetation may be damaged if left unprotected. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… A Frost Advisory means that widespread frost is expected. Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.
