Cool change...

We got the big frost last night.
It got down to 27*.

I'm glad I didn't have to go to work this am,
as that would have required some ice scraping.

After work yesterday I harvested a five gallon
bucket of tomato's and a good sized basket of
peppers and squash.
Still had a lot out there, but decided that was
enough to bring in.
This is what is left of the garden today.

This habanero plant looks pretty with it's leaves
outlined in frost.

Caden looked out his window and thought it had snowed,
since it looked so white on the grass.

I am not ready for fall or winter yet.
With the balmy weather we've had this September,
I guess I thought (hoped) it would last at least through
October. Not to say we wont get some unseasonably
warm days in October, but those will be few and probably
far between.

Love the photos, Kellie! I sure miss frost. In Washington, D.C., we used to get beautiful frosts. Here in the AK mountains, we go straight from summer to a week of fall to huge dumps of snow! (And it looks like it's about to start snowing as I type...)

Nice pic of the frost. Maybe this frost will kill some of the bugs.

I don't think it got as cold at my house.

Wow, you really got frosted!!!!!

We got down to 31 degrees, but it didn't look frosty at our house.

Maybe it will warm back up now that we got our first frost. Or maybe NOT!
