This week, Jack Frost has brought an official end to my growing season. My thriving green beans and slow growing peppers probably would have had a chance to continue into the fall had I paid attention to the weather and given them a sheet of protection. But alas, life has been too hectic and good ol' Jack had his bite and they've wilted into a sad state of green limpness. I still have a couple pumpkins that I'm hoping will ripen up. I'll add them to the pumpkin I pureed yesterday for pies and breads. Yummy!
I've had a busy summer and fall and I'm thankful for the produce that I was able to coax from our land and it really does taste better! We're working on breaking down our garden for winter. Yesterday HandyMan disassembled our tomato trough. We decided that remnants of last year's blight must have been in the wood since those tomatoes did so horribly. We'll explore options for reconstruction in the spring.
GBaby's cast comes off next week which will make outside time a little more fun for all of us. I'm hoping to get a good dose of garden clean up done then. For this week, it's candle pouring and baking!
