Garden Update # 5 – Here Today, Gone Tomorrow!

What a difference a day (or week) can make. While I was out of town we had our first frost on October 25th. My garden went from green to brown, colorful to drab. As you will see in the photos below, most of the plants didn’t survive the frost and my flowers went from technicolor to no color overnight. I can’t complain. This has been one of the best years I’ve had in my garden despite the not so ideal (cool and wet) conditions. I harvested what remained on the wilted plants – one ripe and many green tomatoes, one tiny butternut squash, lots of habanero and jalapeno peppers and a nice pile of Swiss chard. Thanks Mother Nature!

 

Goodbye garden. See you next year!

    I always hate it when that happens! Next year I hope I can get a garden going again. Still figuring out how to keep the deer and squirrels away.

    And if you ever fly through Salt Lake and have some time, you MUST come and see my new house.

    Hi Kalyn,

    I highly recommend you build an enclosure for your new garden. It works wonders in keeping the critters away!

    I definitely will contact you when I get a decent layover in Salt Lake City.
