Frosty Mornings

There is frost on the ground here this morning and a little bit even crept into the flower garden.  If we’re lucky we might have one more week of flowers at the market.  With the frost we will say farewell to a few crops in the garden including zucchini, green beans and peas, which are mostly picked over anyhow.  Much of our production is tolerant to the frosty weather and will be harvested unharmed until mid October.
