Ouch! Winter Hits Hurt

Down here in the foothills of San Diego its not unusual to see temps dip below freezing on some nights… in February.

Unfortunately, during the last three weeks of autumn almost every night has dipped into the low 30’s (and some nights into the 20’s). Most of my subtropicals can survive a few nights of frosty weather, but not weeks of it. Pretty much everything is now fried.

Now I’ll just have to whack it all back, mulch and hope an early spring.

About the Author

Sage Osterfeld
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
