Fallout from the snowfall
Stalwart roses, snow-like substance, and one poor sad Penny dog who's freaked out by the sleet...all photos by Tom yesterday afternoon
So for the last two nights and tonight, the low temperature has been about 30*F. Bye-bye nightshade family. All the eggplant, tomatoes and peppers have been harvested, and I made my last (sniff) batch of ratatouille last night with frostbitten basil. I will continue to pull usable things from the garden until snow truly covers the ground, but as I picked everything yesterday, I mourned (in advance) the end of the routine. With the late late frost this spring and this early early frost this fall, I feel rather ripped off.
