Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 11/18/13

The theme of today’s update is — our first frost! Yes, we had our first frost here this past week. The temperature was below freezing for almost 8 hours, dipping as low as 27 degrees. I covered my pepper plants and tomato plant, but it was fruitless. In the words of Bones from Star Trek, “They’re dead, Jim.” <sigh> Well, it was good while it lasted, and I did harvest a bunch before the frost – and even salvaged a few things after the frost. My fall crops and my herbs survived just fine, thankfully. This week’s garden pictures!
