Well its mid-January and its freezing here. Not that unusual for the desert but still comes as a bit of a shock. The temperature fell to around 27F last night and we had to cover all the vulnerable plants. Managed to buy some sheets from the Goodwill store and used there as covers. Seems to working really well.
For the first time in 5 years our garden pond has frozen solid. The cold snap is expected to continue until Tuesday–roll on the warmer weather!
