The potatoes seem to have survived this past weekend’s freeze warning. We went out and covered them Friday and Sunday nights. My father-in-law said the potatoes and crops could be damaged by frost, but it could be a few days before the damage shows up. That reminded me again of these days we are living in, wondering how much damage has yet to show up.
He knows more about the frost’s effects than I do, and what he knows is that the most of the time May is warmer, but sometimes it isn’t. It always kind of annoyed me how caught up farmers can be with the weather, how everything depended upon whether or not it rained. Now that I’m becoming more interested in weather, I wish I had someone to talk about it with.
