Today's date is 5 November. Summer officially begins in 26 days. And here's what we woke up to this morning:
We covered our early cropping spuds with frost cloth last night, so I'm hoping that was enough to save them. As for the rest of the vegie garden, we'll have to wait and see. Most of what's in there is pretty hardy: lettuce, pak choi, rocket, broad beans, etc. The tomatoes are still too small to be planted out -- just as well, as it turns out.
For more artistic, snow-filled images... well, just look below. And enjoy.
