September 15, 2007 – Mid-September Frost!

It’s early for a frost.  Very early.  Here’s Linda out last night covering some of the flowers in the garden.  We rolled out every tarp, old sheet, and even an old dish towel or two to try to survive the night.

We’re especially worried about the flowers since we have 25 centerpieces for a dinner to get out this week.  It was a hectic night – the horse came, and with the imminent frost, we picked raspberries and tomatoes and covered flowers, peppers, and a few tomatoes racing against the sinking sun.

I’m not 100% sure but I think the work paid off – we had a light frost here and it killed some things, but I think the plants that were covered will be ok.
