The ‘F’ word – frost

The cool crisp nights are telling me they are coming.  And so is the Elders Weather 5 day prediction.



And now the gardens are prepared for it.  The Pepino in the Herb bed is covered, as it really really dislikes frosts and the paved area is the lowest points of the yard.  So the herb garden tends to be frosted hard.  And the young fruit trees are now dressed in pillowcases at night to protect their tender leaves.  Bring it on Jack Frost!
