When we were growing up in this valley it was not uncommon for the first frost to occur during the fair. In fact that was fairly normal.
However, over the past couple of decades it has become much more usual for frost to occur the first or second week of October or even later.
And we have gotten plumb spoiled.
Thus I am utterly not ready for the frost advisory for tonight....at least from some prognosticators. Weather Underground has been saying 40 all day, while other sources are warning of low 30s. Now WU is dropping their low forecast every little while.
I brought some plants in and picked all the ripe tomatoes, but there are so many more. So many plants. So many green tomatoes.
I hope it doesn't freeze.
