TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Wabash Valley had the first Frost Advisory of the season Thursday morning and you probably woke up to frost on your windows!
But for businesses like the Apple House, they were busy preparing for the cold weather earlier in the week.
We caught up with a co-owner of the Apple House, Ryan Cummins, as they were cutting down some of the plants and taking them into storage huts to get them protected.
They say they use a specific material to protect plants and vegetables from frost and snow.
When it comes to your garden, the Cummins says many flowers and vegetables are simply done for the year when the frost comes in like this!
Some leafy plants can be covered and last a month longer.
When it comes to a wider impact, like community gardens that help feed the homeless, Cummins says act quickly.
"Probably the best thing is to get everything harvested as quickly as you can if you have something on there,” he said. “But it's the end of the time for those too."
