The Iron Nights

The first nights in June are usually called "the Iron Nights" here in Sweden because the temperature usually plunges during the night and it's even a risk of frost. When the Iron Nights are over it's usually safe to plant the frost sensitive plants and leave all plants out during the night

Now but April and May have been pretty warm so it felt safe to plant my seedlings already but tonight looks to be cold. The temperature is down to +4°C now and still falling (39.2°F) so I've made sure to take in some of the plants tonight, even the tomatoes! LOL I had to leave the flowerboxes outside though since the beans and peas are attached to the trellis.
