First frost means...
I put on my long underwear before I go out in the morning:
There are tomato pots in my living room:
I have hope that the remaining fruit will still ripen. These are my two favorite heirloom tomato plants this year, the Riesentraube:
...and the Starpit Imperial:
There are tomato vines from the garden hanging in the barn with the hope that these will still ripen, too:
Bubba, the Costata Romanesca zucchini, has been covered with a towel to keep him from freezing:
Since the freezing temps aren't expected for more than a day or two, I'm hoping to extend his growing period. He's getting to be a very big novelty zucchini.
The goat boys are getting their winter coats:
First frost also means it's time to take the sun shade off the chicken run:
I can't be in denial any longer. Fall is here!
