3 inches of rain in last 24hrs. Bet the late blight loved that. Humid & hot today-does it like heat?
Another 1.3 inches of rain fell that afternoon

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
