Monday, May 25, 1925

Monday, May 25, 1925

Frost last night killed our grapes and we had lots of them, too. I’m afraid my august lily is hurt too but I don’t believe anything else is unless it is the cherries. There were some lying on the ground today. Think gardeners lost heavily – tomatoes, beans and strawberries were killed. Thems have been fearfully high but now they will go higher still.

(And to think on April 24, 1925, they had a record high of 90 degrees. Now just a month later, they have enough frost to damage or kill plants. They obviously didn't have weather radar and other weather predicting equipment, so they were probably caught by surprise. This is a late frost for Indianapolis.)
