The Cold Weather is Returning

The cold weather is returning Sunday night and Monday night.  Temperatures will get down to 25 degrees.  Please hold off on planting any tender greens, perennials and annuals.  If you already have planted, cover with a towel, sheet or purchase row covers from your local garden center or hardware store to keep the frost off the leaves.   Good luck and we will chat again when the warmer weather returns!
