    Frost Watch: How to protect your plants
    Posted May 31, 2009 @ 02:22 PM

    Local gardeners may want to take special measures to protect their plants this evening as a frost advisory has been issued for much of New York state, including Oneida County.

    The advisory issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until 8 a.m. Monday.

    Temperatures are expected to fall into the mid-to-low 30s overnight, and a hard frost is likely as temperatures in colder areas approach freezing.

    Brad Alcott, owner of Alcott's Greenhouses in Waterville, said the possible frost may catch some gardeners off guard.

    "Memorial Day has always been the rule of thumb for planting in the garden. So June 1 is definitely late," he said.
    Dam this global warming!

    Wow. The last time it got into the 30s in my neck of the woods was probably early-mid March! This time of year, even the record lows are in the 50s-60s

    We had frost here a couple of weeks ago (in North Georgia) but it barely hit 32 and we are in the mountains in North Georgia.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!
