Last week we had a little “frost on the pumpkin,” as they say, and this week any plants that survived the first frost of the year are probably going to be history after Thursday night’s overnight low of 27 degrees.
It’s ok, though. They’ve had a good run.
On the bright side, the daytime weather is looking darn near perfect for the next week or so.
Enjoy it while it lasts. Here’s what’s new this week.
