News That Matters
Good Friday Morning,
There was a little frost on the pumpkin this morning! Thanks to radiational cooling some surfaces bore a thin sheen of frost marking a pretty early occurrence for our region. Check your tender plants today, they may need a bit of help.
If you're looking for something to do over the next few days you've come to the right place.
