Our first killing frost was two weeks ago, on October 28. The average first frost for my part of Michigan is mid-September. I checked Victory Seeds to see how far off our climate is geographically. Many climate models predict that global warming will result in Michigan climate similar to that of Arkansas or Tennessee. Indeed, Little Rock has an average first frost of October 27. Other cities with similar first frost dates: Tallahassee, FL (10/28) and Dallas, TX (10/24).
I listened to another great podcast by the Wiggly Wigglers. This one was devoted almost entirely to gardening for wildlife.
