Colder weather coming

Cold weather is coming. Next week will have temps as low as 17 degrees. Get hoses that are rolled empty of water. Cover air vents of the house for the next week to keep the pipes warmer. Make sure all water pipes are protected, especially faucets outside.

Put lots of leaves around roses and plants that are more sensitive to cold weather. Fortunately the real cold, below 20 is only a few days.

Leafy veges will usually suffer from the temps around 17. Harvest them and then cover with leaves or straw.

Cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower should be OK but they can be harvested and stored in a dry, cool area.
