Cold Alert!

Hello again!

Projected temperatures 5 to 15 degrees Friday night, 20 to 25 degrees Saturday night in Skillin's Country

I have held off from writing because I do not want to be an inbox pest but understandably many folks are calling and are concerned about their outdoor plants. Really, the only concern should be for any early annuals (pansies) and any other garden crops or shrubs that have been recently planted that have tender buds or leaves. (We know that some fully forced out shrubs and other plants are coming out of the Box Stores!) These should be covered with a sheet or blanket or brought inside. We have not been recommending making such plantings yet--it is still a little early!

YOU DO NOT need to worry about your bulb plantings, existing trees and shrubs or perennials!
