View Full Version : When was your first frost this fall?

I ask because mine was today 10/21. It was a light frost but the windows of my car were mostly ice.

Thank goodness I put up my hoop covers last weekend rather than wait til this weekend. I didn't lose anything I hadn't given up on, and I'm in it for the long haul this fall/winter if my hoop covers survive the fall wind storms.

So when was yours, what did you lose that you didn't intend to, and what, if anything are you doing to extend your season?

I don't think we have had ours yet, but it should have been this week according my almanacs.

Yes I was surprised, I met with some friends and they didn't have 1st frost yet in Tacoma.

Sadly, our first frost was this past Monday 10/20, I lost all tender stuff but the pea's and carrots and usual cold crops are still hanging in there
I was so sad to loose my zinnias...........:(
