Early Winter in Central Utah

First Snow on Cove Mountain

This past week we had our first taste of Winter in Central Utah. The temperatures dipped below freezing and we lost quite a few tomatoes in our garden. We noticed the next day that all of our neighbors had taken the time to cover their tomatoes the night before the storm. A lesson learned for next year in watching for the first frost. The locals say this was a few weeks earlier than usual, October is the normal time. With a bit of chill in the air it gets me excited for the holiday season which is not so far off. In preparation for the winter months I purchased a pair of insulated coveralls from IFA that have proven to be priceless for doing the morning farm chores.
