Last year 2019  it was 27 th of September  , fingers cross it may be a week or so later as we still have dahlias & loads tubbed geraniums  in bloom . We've still got a lot of baby beans  growing too.

Our Average First Frost Date is October 15th, and it is usually pretty close to that. We had a very light frost 3 nights ago, but it didn't do much damage. The tomato plants at the very top of the cages were affected, as were the pole beans on top of the arbor, but none of the peppers or tomato plants inside the cages were bothered. We're still harvesting tomatoes every day, and the Kale, Swiss Chard, and Spinach is loving the cool weather. The fall planting of cucumbers is now in harvest, and they should continue for another couple weeks if the weather holds.

October 28.  Usually a light frost around that time then it warms up until after Thanksgiving.  So I cover for that early frost and then harvest usually before Thanksgiving.

Early frost date for my area is the last week of November, but last year we had it in mid-September, so trying to stretch the tomatoes' production to the max is a challenge. In the past I had to harvest green tomatoes and let them finish off in a box nestled in shredded newspaper. Just don't forget about them, my neighbor kept her's indoors, stashed under her bed and forgot about them until they turned onto a juicy mess.

This year, an unusual freeze streak in late-September, before it was even fall, for at least 3 nights-in-a-row, if not for 4 nights-in-a-row!

Before it was even the equinox! It started before September 20th, IIRC!

Last year ours was a month late!!! My date is usually set at or around October 10th by the extension services.  Our first frost was November 10th, 2019 last year.  This year the weather has been hugely different and I won't be surprised if we get our first frost this week indeed.  Which will be a bummer, because the garden is loaded with lots of juicy wonderful goodness that will turn to mush if there's a frost. Haha

Fingers cross ..whilst it tuned cool & rainy so far the frost has only caught the people up in Scotland 500 miles north of us in South wales. Which has surprised me as we are 117 mtrs above sea level ( 350 feet ) & by now have usually had a visit from Mr. Jack Frost .
