Overnight lows of -2 or 3C widely forecast - protect anything tender you want to keep - I think this should finish the dahlias off, so I can start drying the tubers out.

St. Peter must have been listening! It's 2C at 07.15 this morning and the cars and roofs are well frosted.
I'll check on those "cheeky so and sos" a bit later!!

Sub zero here this morning at 7am, so I daresay the nasturtium leaves have bought it now... plus any late feeding caterpillars too

Well another frost and only 2C again.
However the "cheeky so and sos" were happily sunbathing at 9 'clock this morning!
Any survivors after todays squashing session will definitely be re-named!!

At 7.20 this morning it was -1C.
I'll be checking later if those horrible little critters have survived this one!

Just got back from a quick plot inspection, overnight low was -1.9c here. Ground is mostly frozen solid, so I'll have to go back this afternooon to do some work.
