Finally, a little bit of frost this morning
Is that a good thing
For me, yes, not cold enough to do much plant damage but will finally slow down some of these lawns for two or three weeks before we start to head right back into season.
Same here. I got a frost here too. I did cover up all my plants . The temp went down to 31 in my area.
It was 30 here, already headed back up. I did not cover and the Crotons and Spaths are fine. They are under Live Oaks and the temps were not down that long.
yes sir It is a very good thing!
Our turf and plants need at least one good frost. Kind of like an reset button. Finshes off any lingering summer weeds. Turf needs a dormancy period. Tired of cleaning up oak leaves. They just keep dropping slowly.

I have been lucky enough to dodge the bullet 3 times now.
Last night was the 3rd freeze warning I have had this year. 1st time I covered every thing. Last two times I covered nothing. I guess I would rather be Lucky that Good. Or maybe I am just plain lazy.
BTW I have a couple of Hydroponic set ups growing vegetables right now. I am doing DWC and My tomatoes & Peppers etc are in a DUTCH BUCKET system and looking dynamite. Before summer I have to add shady cloth to keep them growing great. Last year I didn't use Shady cloth and July & August sun burn my plants.
My Aquaponic lettuce is hurting and the Fish are dying. This is my first attempt at Aquaponics and it has a very steep learning curve. I believe my big mistake was introducing too many fish to the system too soon. My plants were not big enough to up take enough Nitrogen to clean the water.
If you are interested in Hydroponic go to U tube for information. Building systems is expensive compared to a dirt garden. However once a system is build the up keep is rather easy and you get a lot more product. The big secret in doing Hydro, is buying fertilizer from a Agriculture supplier. The cost difference is HUGE. Southern Ag sells commercial hydroponic fertilizer in 25 lb bags.
