3 weeks ahead of schedule we're supposed to get our first frost tonight!
I picked everything that was ripe and some things that were almost there that will get ripe inside. The fall crops will survive and some, like Brussels sprouts, will even taste sweeter. We're going to cover some of the tomatoes, peppers and eggplants and let the rest of it go.
I'm a little sad that the plants I started from seed all the way back in February are on their way out. Except the zucchini, the zucchini I'm glad to see go. (note to self: plant less zucchini next year!)
