well today is the first big frost of the season – everything is covered in frost - buckets with water in them have frozen over, broccoli have collapsed with frost, haybales all have a covering of frost. I should have brought the lemon tree up closer to the house although I think it is ok, but I guess I better start paying more attention to weather patterns around here to protect the more frost tender plants. It is a beautiful morning sight to see. I should take a photo but the sun is coming up and my hands are freezing and a bunch of other reasons why I don’t want to go outside again.

The heaviest frosts of the year this past week, I missed most of them due to me being in Sydney, but Lee-Ann managed to snap this shot of Lynsey outside one morning next to the baby alpaca (yes I could have said cria). It was so heavy the frost itself came all the way up the deck.
So how have the veges faired. Well Ok, The broccoli and broadbeans all seem OK as do the garilc and onion. Some of the broad beans tips did go a bit black and a few of the stems fell over from the weight of the frost (most plants fell under the weight of the frost) but overall everything seems to be fine.
