What to Do Before the Frost!
For many of us in Iowa, the first frost of the season is near (if not already happened!). There are many things you can do to prepare for the frost.
- Harvest all produce - tomatoes, peppers, and other warm season crops
- Bring in houseplants and any tender annuals you wish to save.
- Cut flowers and make a final fall bouquets for the table.
- Continue to water fall-planted perennials, trees, and shrubs.
