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.
I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

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

Same here, saw the frost on the grass when I opened the window. I may investigate further later  ::)

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.
