Garden!

Well, it snowed last week and is supposed to get pretty frosty again tomorrow night. I brought in almost all my plants and covered my tomatoes with quilts and plastic. They were fine during the cold snap last week, hopefully they’ll make it another week or two!

As soon as the season is really over and everything is done I’ll do some recaps about what did well and what didn’t.

Meanwhile, here are some pics of the garden throughout the summer and early fall.
