Bjorn, I should slap you for saying the "f" word. Next thing I know, you'll be saying the "s" word! I'm in denial!

Weatherman sald frost comming this weekend :( / My girls are working the aster hard, i have heard that if it isn't a killing frost it makes the aster better. In years past when most everything is dead, the aster still has flowers and the bees work it. :yahoo: Jack

We are still a ways off for frost here, but I am thinking we will have a cold winter with snow this year, we are really due one and if it rains this winter like it has this summer it will be miserable, lots of MUD.

We're protected from the frost for a little while by the Lake, but the rains and today's 40 mph winds are putting the kabosh on the aster foraging, dang it! Not to mention that the asters are somewhat flat.

We've had one frost here but it wasn't heavy enough to kill every thing.
Nearly all the golden rod is finished but the asters are still good.
that all could come to a hault tonight if the weather people are right with a forecasted low of 29F.

Bet there was no crowing about how nice it was in Fl. back in July and Aug.

Hey allyyooper, I wasn't crowing about 93. It was the 59 that was real nice.
It was cooler here than a lot of places up north this summer and we do usually get a cross breeze across the state. I am better acclimated to 90 than 30. The body parts don't seem to function as well at 30.

I live in a low place also with a creek about 100 yards south of the house and my apiary's on a high spot about 100 ft. from the creek. If temp. gets 35 deg. i get a light frost, it happened Oct. 7th mourning and the fog didn't lift til 10:00 am. then the rain started thurs. and fri. i got 6.8 inches. I'm not sure but i think i seen the girls passing out life jacket's, glad they didn't have to use them. :thumbsup: Jack
