At least for us. We haven’t seen a frost since 2015, which was the year before we left North Florida for the Caribbean.
It’s thirty degrees out right now as I type. I braved the cold a few minutes ago and took my Canon 80D out to the garden to capture a few images.
Mustard, decorated with frost:
And a shot of the rye cover crop with a fallen oak leaf:
We left a plastic bin of water sitting by the back door so the children could see if it froze. It did! Look at the lovely ice crystals:
Though I miss the tropics sometimes, I do enjoy seeing the change of seasons again. Even if it’s a bit cold for my equatorial blood.
Tonight is supposed to get even colder. We’ll see how the garden comes through.
This used to be my favorite time of year, until I started a garden and food forest. Getting off work at 3 A.M. and having to defrost the windows before the drive home. That gut wrenching feeling, knowing things got nuked. Ugh…..
