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.


  2. Aw, I hate that. If it helps our lettus is about done b/c of the heat. :)

  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.


I am really going to try and respond to your comments as soon as they come in! I'm so grateful for your notes.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
