For most of the southern prairies and parts of Ontario and Quebec, there's a frost warning out for tonight. This is one strange year.
Ugh!

I hear you! I'm still waiting for spring. The leaves on the trees are not developed fully yet and there are still rabbits running around half white!

Hi Alan & Don

They are calling for frost here in Ont tonight & maybe for the next 3 nights. All 3 nights with lows @ 2 or 3 degrees C. Hopefully the warmer weather is coming soon. We had snow flurries on Sunday afternoon. Good luck guys.

Staying above 13 (55) in the tropics of Ontario, lol.

I can't believe you guys still have to deal with frost Phil...

It's back for tonight, at least for me. It was -1 this morning when I got up, but there was no damage. Everything was tucked in nicely. Where's spring???

Oh yeah, that's right, we got the Sears Fall and Winter Catalog last week. I guess we skipped spring and summer altogether LOL!

Whatever you do, don't watch the weather channel when they are covering weather on the west coast....it is un-real here right now and apparently going to stay that way.

Got that right North Shore Boyz. I have never had to worry about burning the plants or drying out this much before.

Really sucks here too, We have had frost the last 3 nights, Monday night was minus 4, Had tomato plants freeze in the green house, I guess it's nice weather for October.

Hey Jordan, it's amazing the changes in temps just by going a few hours north of you. One more cold night to go before this spell is over. Hopefully it's the last. Jane still needs to plant her tomatoes & LGs.

Hi Eddy

Just thought I'd let you know the 898 germinated okay & is currently @ 3'. We're really hoping that it's males are ready in time. Look out for our 2009 crosses. They will be the ones to break through to the next level. 1269 Hunt x 898 Knauss = 1800#+. ;o) Thanks again for the trade. Take care.
