Killing Frost

    As was forecast, we got our killing frost last night as the temperature plunge down to -5C (23F).  All of the tender plants in the garden got clobbered and the tougher ones, like the cabbage you see, were powdered with frost crystals.  That is the price we had to pay for clear skies.  Tomorrow night it will get even colder, -8F (17F).  
    The cold put an end to our garden for the season, now that most everything is dead, I suspect it will warm up again, as I start cleaning out and taking all of the dead plants to the compost pile.

Take a look at my photo-realistic paintings:
