Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Saturday, October 3, 2009


Yesterday we spent some time cleaning up the mess that the frost left us. We pulled everything out of the garden except the tomato plants (that only got frosted on the tips) because we are covering them and the cucumber plants that we have been covering. Everything else bit it, but what do you expect at 21 degrees farenheit. I think we will be able to get a few more tomatoes and cucumbers before the winter season takes it all away.

This has been a good garden even though it started really late because it was so cool and wet this spring. I don't think we took more out of it than ususal but we have really enjoyed it and have eaten a lot of stuff out of it. This was a really good garden - I hate to lose it.

There's always next year! Hearing about your garden has sure made me antsy to get home and plant something!
