We nearly missed last Winter. Spring was short. Summer came early and now Fall is asserting itself before I am ready.
Fortunately the garden was untouched. Normally we are frost-free for another three weeks. I’m not even sure this is the first frost, just the first one I noticed.
I don’t think this is a good sign. Could be a long, cold winter. Not good for the bees. The next few days are calling for warmer weather but no real sign of an indian summer. I don’t think there was frost on the clover where the cows are grazing right now. I’ll have to keep an eye on them.
