In anticipation of the predicted cold snap, I spent Wednesday, Thursday and Friday harvesting as much as possible. Good move on my part. Sadly last night was our first frost, it killed the zucchini, summer squash, cucumber and basil, it also did heavy damage to the tomatoes and peppers. We will just have to make a seasonal adjustment for the remainder of the season. Although it is not nearly as dramatic a loss as last season, it is a loss none the less. Somewhat expected, but early for sure. Such is growing food, she has her way.
