As I type it is still dark outside and the thermometer is reading 27°F. Today my compost heap is going to get an extremely large addition of plants that were frozen overnight. Before the frost hit I dug up and repotted some herbs and brought them indoors, did one last final harvest of green tomatoes, tiny squash, sugar snap peas and said goodbye to the nasturtiums and borage. It’s always sad to see the gardening season end but, on the other hand, it’s also a good time of year to start planning next years garden.
Well, it’s time to have some coffee and wait for the sun to rise before ripping out frost-bitten plants. Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!
