Tonight I am expecting the first frost of fall.
I’m OK with that. I am ready to be done with the garden. Despite my best efforts, the tomatoes once again escaped their cages and took over the yard. The beans… Wow, did I pick the wrong variety of beans. The ran all across their bed, took over the peas and made a break for the house. And the worst part is that the beans got so leafy that I couldn’t really fight my way to the bottom of them to harvest any of them.
So, in honour of the first frost I have harvested as much as I can and pulled the rest. I have a big basket of eggplant, two buckets of tomatoes and I have completely given up on the beans. The carrots are safe against frost. I left the corn standing.
I’m not expecting any corn. I got everything in so late this year, I wasn’t really expecting much of anything.
I’m not looking forward to months of cold, but I was ready for all the work in the garden to be done.
