Garden report: closing early

  I'm keeping a close eye on the weather reports again ... the forecasters are predicting a hard freeze by the end of the week. 

  Had a feeling this was coming after our early frost ... but still, this is very early for us ... I normally don't worry about the freeze until Halloween.

   So it looks like this week's big project may be to shut down the garden.  Not that there's a lot left at this point ... maybe a dozen or so small tomatoes and a few peppers.

  I do feel badly about my mum, which I overwintered from last year and planted in the spring.  It's grown quite large, but hasn't bloomed yet.

  I'm not sure how hardy it is, but I'll cover it and hope for the best.
