I was expecting 38 last night so I didn't drag in all the subtropical
plants I have spread around the yard. I woke up this morning to 33 and
a lot of unhappy plants...

The good news is a mystery grape that (of course) is the most disease
resistent & productive of all the vines in my trial plantings produced
28 pounds of fruit, enough for 2 gallons of juice...

& something ate all the hardy kiwis off from one of my plants, no sign
of the fruit anywhere.
