The temperature dipped below freezing on October 30th. The summer garden is officially finished. I did manage to pick the last of the produce that day. I'm very thankful for all of the food that we've harvested and eaten or put up. The fall garden is supplying us with fresh greens, turnips, onions, carrots, beets and pak choi. Soon they will be gone too. Both me and the gardens can then rest.
I laid the peppers, green tomatoes and eggplants out on a towel to dry. Next to them sat the dixie speckled butter peas. With Halloween in the air, how could I resist?
Farewell summer garden. Farewell October. Welcome November.
