Harvesting In Case Of Frost

Today in the garden...

...used all the bath water on the lambs' ears in the side garden.
...watered all the containers huddled on the patio.
...brought the caladiums inside to go to sleep for the winter.
...harvested patty pan squash, cherry tomatoes, a few bell peppers and a bunch of jalapeno peppers.


  1. The peppers looks so good! I have several blog friends expecting a cold weekend.

  2. Good luck on the peppers....they sure do love the sun:)

  3. Hi There, We have a VERY busy weekend since my son is getting married..... Should be TERRIFIC.

    Hope you don't get frost yet. Hope we don't either... I want to enjoy my roses a little longer.


  4. Sounds as though things are starting to close down for the winter there too. The peppers look fantastic, and I love the metallic butterfly in your sidebar.

  5. With the AC in full gear, I am just shocked that you are in threat of the first frost. You always have wonderful things in your garden, and I hope you get it all harvested!



  6. Is that crazy or what!!! I was finally able to get my houseplants moved back in. .a few cuttings taken from coleus and sweet potato vine. I uprooted one purple fountain grass to divide later and I hacked through the ginormous foxtail fern I bought early summer. .I divided it, and then stuck the fallen off pieces into some rooting hormone and into a pot. .I hope they will root. .It's a cool plant. I notice that we are looking to be a little cooler at night for not one, but two nights now. .I guess I should run out and grab jalepenos too! Too bad. .Would be nice to extend that out for another few weeks!
