Closing the garden



The overnight temperatures are dropping a bit too close to freezing for my tastes, even though we haven't had an official frost just yet.


So I gave in and pulled all the green tomatoes and tiny peppers and brought them inside. I think I have more than 3 dozen tomatoes in a paper bag right now. They'll ripen (well, most of them will ripen) and will be fine for cooking.


Sad, though, to realize that gardening is over for another year...
