We are at the tail end of our harvests for this year. Usually frost comes around the week of Sept 22, but not this year. I 'm still waiting for news on the first freeze as that is the time when I go through left over harvests and pick the garden clean. This year, all my tomatoes are almost done ripening and so too with other vegetables. I am totally satisfied with all the harvests and will not be scrambling to cover anything from the first freeze, like I usually do. For a change, I am ready to let the garden go this year...
