Notice: be aware of frost damage at the big box store.




As you probably realized this week, we had many days of temperature around the freezing point. At one time, here in central Maryland, the water in the potholes froze.

We surveyed the frost tender plants at some of our local big box stores and with no surprise, we found many, if not all in some places, tomato plants with frost damage on the leaves because the plants was left outside during the nights.

What surprised us is at one big box store, they brought inside, to a warm place, all their no-frost and no-cold resistant plants. More, because the temperature at 10:00am was around 40*F, the plants were always inside protected against the cold weather.
