Another Year, Another Freeze
It was not as bad this year as in 2007, but last night's freeze was just as unwelcome. It did cause damage to some of my plants, including a new Pineapple Sage (prematurely planted - what can I say?) and a dwarf Crape Myrtle, even though they were covered up, but most seem to have made it through just fine. One reason is that the temperature was just a few degrees below freezing (two years ago, it went down into the teens), and the other is that, March not having been as mild (read: "warm") as it was in 2007, not as much growth had taken place. So, minimal damage, from what I can see this afternoon. The best news is that there is not another freeze in the forecast - time to go and buy tomato plants!
