Q: Where can I learn the date of the first frost for the Waco area?

A: The county Extension office (757-5180) has that information. The average date of the first killing frost in Central Texas is November 15. Realize that is an average and you have a 50-50 chance of having no frost on that date. If you want to protect your cold sensitive plants so they may grow a little longer, consider covering with old sheets or frost cover from a nursery. Do not use plastic covering unless you place something between the plant and the plastic.
