I'd have to say the gardening season is officially over.
What wasn't frozen is. What takes time to freeze will be frozen.
The weather diagnosis is for lows in the mid twenties for the next three days. It will be interesting to see how the beets, turnips, lettuce, sugar snap peas and asian greens fare. What will happen to the potatoes still in the ground? Will they get tastier or turn to mush? Soon I might even feel compelled to clean up the remnants of this years roadside vegetable garden and get it ready for another load of fresh from the trimmer's truck, wood chip mulch.
Another layer of insulation was added to the top of the Spot's abode. They seem oblivious to the cold and quite content. I spied spotlet #1 eating some kitten chow. It is time to take some of the stress of feeding off of Spot.
A pleasant two inches of snow fell from a cold and windy sky. It is visible as a snow covered mountain where there is no fall colored forest to hide it.
Now the wind can stop blowing and all will be well.
