Early Frost

Frozen lettuce

Summer. Frost. Two words that should not go together. Yet, I look back at last year and I wrote about a summer frost on the 18th. After tossing sheets over all my remaining veggies last night and finding them frozen this morning, I have new motivation to break ground on my greenhouse.

On the positive side, maybe we’ve seen the last of the skeeters.

    Hi again. We had frost last week here in Otsego County New York. It didn’t damage much, it was brief. But it did kill many of the leaves on my cheese pumpkin vines prompting an earlier harvest than I was planning. We left some of the smaller gourds hoping that the vines aren’t completely dead. We’ll see…
    And oh, by the way, we’ve got baby ducks! We were told Indian Runners aren’t broody, but turns out, ours is. We let her keep the eggs because we didn’t think anything would come of it, but there are 8 ducklings so far, and 4 more eggs in the nest that shes still sitting on.

      Lisa, that’s SO exciting about the ducks. Your flock has just increased exponentially! There’s nothing more fun that watching a mama and her babies. Congrats!
