Stumbled across a link to an excellent synopsis of frost and its effects via @urbangarden. If you don’t have a copy of A Gardener’s Guide to Frost, this is the next best thing.

Thank you for reminding us in Southern California that we love the crops that come from frosty climates- but living in the land of orange trees- we should not complain so much about the weather.

No, no, I’m trying to ignore frost and hope it ignores my garden for a few more weeks! The dahlias are finally in full bloom and need more time before they RIP :-)

I went out to Amazon and snatched up a copy of the Gardener’s Guide to Frost after reading about it here the other day. Larry is ripping through it and we have have visions of all sorts of frost-beating strategies in our heads now. Thanks!
