Much to the Gardeners Shagrin, Frost

1st frost of the fall
"That's it. Say goodbye!" I hear shouted from the back door as Jason stumbled in bearing 2 overflowing crates of peppers.  "The garden's done for the year." 

After our first heavy frost of the season all that is left are the leafy greens, cabbages, cauliflower,  brocoli & fennel plants. (Still a hearty bounty perfect for winter soups!) The last of the peppers were quickly picked before they turned black from the frost. I know what we'll be having for dinner tonight... Peperonata.

 Soon we will turn the ground, cover it in manure & let it rest for the winter....preparing the land to do it all over again next year!
