Would you believe that earlier this week, we had temperatures in the upper 80's (Fahrenheit, of course)? That's about 30 degrees Celsius, for those of us who grew up with metrics.
And this morning, I woke up to 31 degrees Fahrenheit (that's just below freezing). Thankfully, I had covered my pots on the back deck. The basil was a goner even before last night, but I hope my fuchsias, which I've babied through quite a few winters, will survive.
