I admit I remained skeptical about the severity of the approaching cold front. Now my area is being forecast for lows of 47F Tuesday and 42F Wednesday. This would be acceptable however, I am concerned that prior experiences have seen low temperatures dip as much as 5 degrees below forecasts. 5 degrees colder is really huge when inching towards the 30's. Nothing has been fertilized since early Oct. But much new tender growth occurred because of the warm weather. Seeing lows in the mid to high 50's a few times for a few hours may not have hardened off my plants enough.
