North Carolina weather

It has been an interesting week at FrogPond Acres, weather-wise. Wednesday we were in the 70ºs and the bees were flying to gather pollen. Yesterday evening was a gorgeous full moon. This morning it was snowing – not hard, but enough to cover the grassy areas. This afternoon is sunny and cool. Tomorrow we are forecast for some rain.

The grass and the weeds are growing, but tool cool and damp to get much in the garden. That just makes us more anxious to get seeds sprouted in the greenhouse for later transplanting.

It’s Cold here in the South

This is ice from the pond Monday morning. The temp got down to 5º Sunday night after about an inch or so of snow and sleet on Saturday.

We have started to warm back up, and the forecast is for mid-60ºs by Friday before cooling back down.

The heaters in the greenhouse could not keep up so we supplemented them with a kerosene heater. Everything seems to have survived just fine.
