Extending the Harvest
An early cold front brought near freezing temperatures last night and a low of 30 is forecast for tonight. We’ve covered the tomatoes and some peppers and eggplant, hoping to extend the harvest. Our average first freeze is early December, so hopefully we’ll have another 3 weeks before we’re forced to abandon these crops for the season.
Picking ripe eggplant and cutting basil, in case the cover strategy doesn’t work.

Peppers and eggplant covered. Some bigger eggplant we are leaving uncovered, as it may survive 30 deg. OK.
Broccoli under cover with garlic sprouting on the right.
