Frosty Monday Morning













Looks like the end of the flowers. 27 degrees F was a bit colder than I expected. Didn't cover things and now they are gone.

Gack! Our coleus bit the dust last night in our 34-degree low, taking us by surprise, too. Grrrrr!!!! At least you got some gorgeous photos from the wreckage!

Sad, but beautiful, and right in the grand scheme of things. Covering would have been more work, only postponed the inevitable, and been a bit of nose-thumbing at Mother Nature. Good call.

Unrelated question: once a chick pecks a hole in its shell, what's the max time it should take to extricate itself? I tried a rescue on a 24+ hour one that looks to have gone badly.....

Thanks for the email tips on being an EMT for emerging chicks. I took your advice and let it do the remainder of the work itself and it looks like we got lucky. Now if it will just be a pullet.....

Oh I hate it when that happens...I have had my peppers covered for the last few weeks and although the tomatoes froze I still am getting peppers daily! Kim
