Frost on the Mountain
I snapped this photo (and later applied an Instagram filter) of Big Meadows from the intersection of our road - this frost was on the taller mountains from Mary's Rock, north of us, where the Thoroughfare Gap park entrance is, south beyond Elkton. I first noticed the weather on Hightop Mountain.
My friend David, over at Public House Produce, has been keeping me posted on what must be done on the farm when you've got your crops sown and late cold weather comes in like this. The last frost date in the Luray area is mid-May, so this weather is not altogether unusual, even though it did make it uncomfortably chilly at night! In any case, I hope to have a post up in the next few days showing some of David's preparation for the cold weather.
