Before the Killing Frost

When living in Eastern Pennsylvania weather reporters begin to warn gardeners, usually in October, of a potential  killing freeze. A pivotal night when temperatures drop below the freezing point and annuals die, perennials die back to the ground and leaves turn brown.  In order to extend our growing  season we cover those tender plants we hope will continue to survive a few more days or weeks,  But there comes a day when warnings no longer come because the freeze has become part of the norm.
