  •  Is a low of 41 typical for early September, (6+ / 0-)

    for your part of Michigan, Dr. Arcadia?  I'd be worried that would send a bad sign to the tomatoes, telling them it was too late to ripen, so don't try.

    •  41 F is not a record low for sure (6+ / 0-)

      The average date of first frost here is supposed to be Oct 10th, but my experience suggests Oct 4th.  I can remember Sept 15th for a first frost.

      We once "camped" at my brother's place in Reed City, Michigan (west, but not far north of here) on Sept 20th and the temperature dropped to 20 F.  The kids (and a few unnamed adults) had fun "sledding" on the frost covered hill behind their house until the sun reached it about noon.

      The plural of anecdote is NOT data
