First Frost Forecast for Mountain Maryland

Postby Don McCombs » Thu Sep 15, 2011 4:36 pm

I know some of you have probably had yours, but our first frost of the fall is forecast for this evening. Not to worry, though. The garden is cleaned up and the cover crop planted. :D

Is that earlier than normal?

Slightly, but not too much. We've had snow the first week of October on occasion. :D I'm at 2650' elevation.

Areas near us are forcast for frost also .
We were in the mid fifties this afternoon, I'm not complaining after the extremely hot summer that we have had, the cool weather is welcome.
Our garden is 90% finished, just a few green beans left.

I started out with nothing and now I only have half of that left !

On the roof here, but not on the ground. The lake tends to moderate the temp a bit. In other parts of the County, they did get a good frost.

We had it on the roof top also here in WVa, my kind of weather. :wink:
Few more weeks of warm weather and it all breaks loose... :{_}:

We were supposed to have some last night too in Franklin NY. It got nearly there but not quite. None on the truck either. That is usually the first place.
