Killer Frost

The temperature when I got up at 4:30 am [oh sometimes I don't sleep so well and I just give up and get up!], was 28 degrees...
unless my foggy morning eyes were not seeing the thermometer properly.

We did have the heat turned off in the house.  I turned it on to warm things up for the morning.
If you are curious, our house in not much more than a wee cabin.

Yesterday we had a hard frost also.


The grass was pretty white except where it was protected under the trees.

But the ice crystals were pretty evident even by 9 am.


By late afternoon, it was nice and warm.


So here it begins again.  
Start the morning with coveralls and a stocking cap and as the day warms towards noon peel off the other clothes. 

Then go with a light jacket or even t-shirt weather like when I was pulling frosted and dead plants from the garden.

The hard frost always looks pretty ,yet always slippery.
So far here in Southern New
England we haven't gotten a hard frost yet and I'm not complaining.

We might get a frost tonight. Gary has pulled most of the plants out of our gardens already. Just have some beets, leeks and spinach left. A wee cabin! I would love to see it.
