Good Frosty Morning

Hello again,

Good frosty morning Skillin's Country!

There is fairly widespread frost this early morning in Skillin's Country. If you have some favorite tender flowering or vegetable plant material that has not been protected by a sheet or some device, then I would suggest getting right out there and spraying those plants with a spray of water.

This fresh water can knock off any frost particles that might rupture the cells of your plants when the sun gets warm enough to melt those sharp little particles.

It is going to be a cold week this week but tender material is "saveable" with a covering of a sheet or frost blankets that we sell right here at Skillin's. As I just wrote it is possible to save exposed plant material with a quick shower as well.
