Get out the sheets & plastic! Chance Of May Frost! 😵 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

2020 has been a CRAZY year so far!!! Now to top it all off, we have a chance of a VERY Late Frost! 🧊 A RECORD LOW!!! 

Break out the sheets and plastic, we got a crazy late frost heading our way Friday night into Saturday morning that’s gonna break records & some hearts! 😢

Things we can do –

  •  Bring in potted plants 
  • Cover tender plants with sheets and/or plastic!
  • Cover veggies 🍅 🌶  🌽
  • IF you have an irrigation system, time it to come on before sunrise and run till after. Waters thermal properties are amazing.
  • We can’t change the weather, but we can be prepared! 

I even cover my Japanese Maples!  Lots to do, but it’s worth the effort! This has been an eventful weather year, but fret not! We will get past this & see smooth sailing soon ⛵️ 

Have a good day & be ready! You have been warned…

Sunday Reflections…

Sunday morning is my favorite morning to grab a cup of coffee and get outside! This morning the birds were singing up a storm & there was still a good breeze blowing. Last night was more of a gale force wind 💨 LOTS of plants to stand up at the nursery 😊 

Like most late April’s, we have been sunny and warm one day to cool and raining the next… Tonight looks like we are getting down into the upper 30’s 🥶 But, that’s April in Tennessee! Can you say “Blackberry Winter”! 

When the Wisteria and the Blackberries are blooming, expect a cold snap. The old folks call it Blackberry Winter 🥶

 

“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”
   ~ Robert Frost


Have a Blessed Sunday!
