So we had a early snow event last week – which was crazy. My annuals in planters were still blooming, as was my hibiscus tree. Meanwhile, the light snow covered my vegetable garden as well, but that didn’t stop the last of the season peppers and tomatoes from ripening. The weather has been back to a more normal autumn the past few days so there are still a few more tomatoes and peppers that will probably ripen before the ground is totally frozen for good.
