Well we got a frost this morning in Potter. 36 degrees on the thermometer right now. Question is, how is this going to affect my food plot for the year? I have about an acre of brassica's. I'm wondering if this frost is going to get the deer hammering them already.

My experience is it take more than a frost to make brassicas palatable to deer. It usually takes 3 to 4 good freezes and then the deer start hammering them. Everything has variation though, areas with high deer densities may see brassicas getting eaten right away, etc...
