Last Day?

October 16th, 2017

We haven’t had a frost yet here in the garden, but it’s really only a matter of time. Tonight they are predicting the lows to be 30 – brrrr, that’s cold. We may have a freeze before we have a frost. I’ve been wanting to plant a cover crop in the side of the main garden that housed tomatoes, peppers, and squash, but I have been dragging my feet because the nasturtiums that were surrounding the tomatoes are still blooming like crazy.

The bees are loving them so much, I simply haven’t been able to rip them all up. No doubt, tomorrow morning they will be gone. Then I can get on with planting cover crops and moving towards putting the garden to bed for winter.

Most of the garden still looks really great. It’s hard to believe that the snow will be flying soon. This gardener is certainly looking forward to a bit of rest though and a bit of sewing as well.

Have you had a frost/freeze in your garden yet?
