Colder weather is coming this week. As always, whenever the first cold snap hits in this season, gardeners panic just a little bit.

Remember that this will not be a hard freeze.

Temperatures below 30 degrees are a hard freeze and cause a lot of damage to tender plants. However, these temperatures we're expecting aren't going to cause a great deal of damage, so relax a bit.
