The freeze cometh…

It is finally going to reach freezing tonight.  With the temperature drop comes the end of another die-hard growing season.

The lasts fruits of our crops are in. Tonight two Korean sweet twisted pepper plants and a lone zucchini plant gave up its bounty.


Surprising that the pepper plants were so hardy despite the cold weather.


The zucchini plant didn’t produce much at all. For all its gangly spread across the plot it only gave up in the end one small zucchini no bigger than a lime.  (Well, that might not be true.  There was a big brother that didn’t make it.  Tragedy struck when we found it had split apart a few weeks prior).
