Reading the colors

The forecast was for 30-ish. We’d already had the peas and broccoli under cover for the past couple of nights, but tonight and tomorrow will see a true hard freeze for us here, so the smaller trees, not yet hardy enough to withstand that cold, had to be covered. Fortunately, with a number of five foot trellises previously used to brace al sorts of vegetables in the summer, we had plenty to useas suppotrs for the plastic we used to cover the trees to get them through the cold snap. I’m not a huge fan of cold weather. I am, however, a huge fan of being able to see large swaths of the sky as the colors change when we move from day to night (or night to day).
