The weather report says our first frost should hit tonight. I am having my friends from Sunday school out for a bonfire this Saturday and I was really hoping my flowers would stay pretty until then. All I could do was go out this afternoon and pick the last of them so that I can enjoy them inside.
This was my first year growing dahlias. They were much easier to grow than I expected and oh boy, did they put out the blooms.
I also covered a couple rows of spinach, lettuce and radishes out in the garden. Other than that, you just have to accept it and move on. The first frost draws the line for me. Winter is on its way.
