Monday morning, after the frost, but before the sun. Everything looks pretty much normal still.
A few hours later, once the sun has had a chance to warm things up. It was a mild frost, only damaging the tops of delicate plants. I could let these beans live on, until a harder frost kills them off, but I've had plenty of production this year.
One final picking, as I pull the plants up. It's nice not having to bend over to pick the beans. The plants are going to the turkey pen for fodder, the beans I sort and pull seeds from the largest ones, and freeze or eat the rest.
The hugelkultur beans are showing about the same rate of damages. The height did not help them this time.
The squash outside are frazzled.
Inside the greenhouses, everything still looks good, strong and healthy.
Before and After- Perennial Bed Tomatoes
I picked off all the orange and larger tomatoes before the frost, but the plants still look pretty good.
Even the salsa peppers made it through ok. I do believe I have a microclimate here.
New room mates in the turkey pen. No one is impressed. In our efforts to keep Nanner and Sheila from getting knocked up this fall, we've moved them over here. They don't like it. They do like beans though, so it's a trade off.
And these two will be sad when the garden is done. They've both inherited their grandpa's love of veggies. Don't leave the veggie bucket on the floor. They steal carrots! lol.
