Getting Caught Off Guard

Our first average frost date is November 27th but generally the frosts don’t hit hard until late December and don’t really get serious until January.

Well, this year has so far been far from normal, so I’m not quite sure why we thought the status quo would continue in term of average frost dates. While spending a week freezing in Wyoming at home our citrus trees were freezing unexpectedly.

I’m really bummed out. This is the first year we’ve been able to get our orange tree – the only tree we didn’t cut down when we moved in – to fruit and it is loaded with fruit. I’m really hoping the fruit isn’t ruined. And I really hope our younger citrus trees made it through the freeze.
