Garden notes/I should have known better

The old Beatles' song is what I'm singing this morning. I should remember that Memorial Day last frost means the real Memorial Day, not the invented one to give us a three day weekend. We had a frost last night, and though Tom covered, the squash is in bad shape. We have a few more plants so we'll be okay. I think the cukes are alright. But still, but still, I should have known better.

  1. Hi Nan: We planted our garden on Sunday, and last night Jack Frost paid us an unexpected visit. We should have known better as well.

  3. I planted out my courgettes (zucchini) and I am keeping my fingers crossed we don't have any more frost. It can be very unpredictable here in northern England, though at this time of year I think the cold wind does most damage.

  4. That's a late frost, oh dear. Bad luck, Nan. If it stops raining, I'm going to plant my geraniums today -I'm convinced that we won't have any more frosts in S. England. In fact the garden is so jungly I shall have to stop blogging for a while.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
