Jack Frost is in Da House!

Woke up this morning and it was 26 deg. (F). I know this is not unusual for much of the US but you have to understand we don't get many days like this in the Bay Area. We even have a little snow on our local foothills. It's very pretty to look at on my way into work.

I'm so glad we built the mini hoop houses over the weekend. I even put another layer of row covers on all the beds yesterday just in case. I'm sure most of what I've got growing, which isn't much will be just fine. I got home from work after dark tonight so I couldn't really see how the garden faired. We will have another cold night tonight, dropping back down to the upper 20's. The temperature in the garden as I write this at 7:15 P.M. is 38.

I took this photo this morning. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you can see the frost sparkling on the row cover of bed 2.

Stay Warm!


  1. BBBbrrrr (where's the blanket) oh its covered in ice. It looks pretty though, little sparkles.

  2. Smart girl! I was going to build a hoop cover for my beds, but figured everything would be fine since we hardly had any freezing nights last year (my 1st yr here), and now I'm regretting it! I covered with blankets, but this morning, everything was frozen... Crossing fingers they bounce back...
    Oh, and the foothills were gorgeous! 1st snow I've seen in over a year!

  3. Warm! snow! I live on the east coast of Canada and there's a storm blowing in.

  4. Mangocheeks - Thanks for stopping by. The beds where covered in ice (frost) again this morning. So very cold.

    Momma S - Oh I hope your garden pulls through OK. I don't think you live to far from me.

    Judith - Thanks for stopping by. Oh I hope we don't get any of that storm. The next rain we get this week they say is going to be more tropical which means the temps should go up just a bit.
