With frost possible for parts of northeast Wisconsin including Door and Kewaunee Counties this weekend, gardeners are retreating to their plots to protect their plants. The National Weather Service says plants further away from Lake Michigan in east-central and northeast Wisconsin likely will need some protection to survive because of the oncoming frost. Carrie Sherrill from the Door County Master Gardeners says while potted plants are easy to move inside for the overnight hours, it takes a little extra effort if they are still in the ground.
The possible frost is ahead of schedule according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which says the first time usually happens between October 4th in Sturgeon Bay and October 6th in Kewaunee.
