Today's cool, damp weather is a good reminder that our first frost is not that far away---typically September 30 for the Denver area. While you're out and about this weekend you might want to stop by your local garden center and pick up a floating row cover or frost blanket. These light weight, permeable, reusable throws are just the thing to have on hand to drape over your annual flowers and tender vegetables when frost threatens. There's nothing worse than seeing a great crop of basil or beautiful patio containers turned into mush over night!
