Frost Damages Florida Crops

Late season frost damages western Palm Beach County corn and bean crops to the tune of millions 

Belle Glade area vegetable farmers were assessing damage Tuesday after temperatures that dipped as low as 25 degrees Monday in isolated areas, ruining at least a few thousand acres of crops and costing farmers into the millions of dollars.

One of the signs of the next grand minimum is the shortening of the growing season, so I am interested in tracking late spring frosts and early fall frost.
