Good thing I have the day off!

I worked last weekend so I have today off as comp.  good thing, too!  The forecast is for the first hard frost of the fall tonight.
We've had a few light frosts here and there already but it's supposed to get down to 32*F if not a little colder tonight so this should be the end of the garden.  
So... Today I want to bring in all the squash that are *almost* ripe and pick what few green tomatoes that are left as well as any peppers I can find.  Honestly, I'm ready to be done.  The weird weather we've had has made for a lackluster season.  

Time to hope for a mild winter and a successful greenhouse.


  1. I'm with you on being done. I still have to clean up the raised beds, plant my garlic and winter peas, but that is that. I keep checking out the woolly bears (caterpillars hereabouts) for signs that it will be mild and prove the old farmers wrong. So far, no luck. Darn and drat.

  2. Ya know, I've never heard so many dyed-in-the-wool gardeners say they are so ready for the gardening season to be done, over with and forgotten this year. (My hand is raised on this issue also.) I think it's because the wonky weather made us all work so hard getting things to grow and mature. (As if we could will them to do so!)

    1. Yeah, this year seemed like a lot of work for not much to show for it.


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
