The same cold front that brought the weekend's rain also brought a
return to springtime temperatures -- for a couple of days, at least.
Last night's low was 45° F (approx 7° real); actually, that's closer to
average Dec-Feb lows than to those in April. Didn't cover anything and
the okra definitely is not pleased. Nothing too serious, though. Just a
bit wilty and petulant. Expect that a bit of water along with a promise
not to do it again will bring it around. Tomatoes, peppers, basil seem
unaffected, although, those in containers small enough were moved to the
shelter of the front porch roof. Gotta stay indoors for at least a few
more minutes, though: Neighbor's still grousing because a racoon (most
likely culprit) got the last three of the peaches of which he was so
proud and I don't want to be in the line of verbal fire.
