Saturday April 2nd 2016Tim
indeed but perhaps more interesting is the year 1961
which apparently saw a frost in these parts on the
morning of May 27th. It's the case that frost can
happen when a thermometer reads 36 degrees Fahrenheit.
That's your Patchy Frosts, and at around 33 degrees you
can get the Harder Frosts that settle and pinch, but
tomorrow morning's predicted temperature is 30 degrees
Fahrenheit and that kind of horrible news means frost is
called A Freeze.
At 30 degrees
the Potato Sprouts will blacken, and the suspicion is that
things like Peach blossom might struggle, Strawberry with
tender growth won't be happy and the list is a little long.
In short a Sturdy Yeoman would do well to put away his
higher hopes go into the late Saturday evening to cuddle and
swaddle his gentler charges. Might not be that easy to do
with a forecast for gusty winds long into the darkness.
