    It's normal here. The first frost average is Oct. 30. Some years sooner, some later, too make the average.

Several have told me their turnips never made or they died, and wanted to know how come mine done good. I tell them you have to be smarter than a turnip :mrgreen: , they grin and mumble something and walk off. :lol: Jack

    2010 is reported to be the hottest year since 1980something, worldwide and in North America.
