A question about frost...
I have just returned from rummaging around outside in the dark, trying to cover everything before the frost hits tonight. Got me to thinking, what is it that makes frost so bad? I was under the impression that simply the freezing of the plant was the bad thing.
But my grandfather, who has been farming for years, says the frost on the plants is fine in itself. It's only when the sun hits the frost and begins to melt it when the problem occurs. Does this make sense? I hate to question his plant expertise, but he also says bacon fat can cure skin problems... I'm not so convinced of that either. ;)
