“Record low temperatures in the middle of last week threw everything into fall transition and winter readiness. Some gardens were caught short with late warm season crops, but most were ready with greens and cool season veggies in place. Livestock fared well with ample hay stocks for coming winter. Those with cool season forages are elated with the change in weather,” said Glenda Sutherland, Union County Extension agent.
