Final.Harvest.9.12.2Well, there was a frost warning last night here in Carroll County, New Hampshire – the first of the season.  Indeed, it was 33 degrees when I woke up around 6:30 a.m. so it was likely a bit chillier earlier.  I am so not ready for this.

Anyway, in anticipation of the frost, I did a quick harvest of some vegetables still out in my container garden.  I had a few of my new favorite lemon cucumbers, one really nice looking green pepper, and a bunch of tomatoes — including a few not quite ripe but I picked them to save them.

Overall I had a successful season with my garden – which may yield a few more things yet.  I also have a ton of basil which I plan to save for use over the winter.

Meanwhile, I am already planning what to do next year.
