We received a killing frost on October 18th, which was to be expected. We normally receive frost by October 9th. We had 27 mm of rain last week bringing the monthly total to 37 mm (1.5 inches), which is about normal. For 2015 from May 9th to October 18th, we’ve counted 3,391 heat units, slightly above the normal 3,239 hu. It is somewhat difficult to know whether the last heat units really helped growth since many plants were already starting to dry up.
