Our garden was a major success for us, although because I neglected to thin the carrots, our harvest there was thin and spindly. Never mind. Our beans, tomatoes and onions were a major success, by our modest standards. I made half a dozen batches of green tomato chow chow, which we love, as well as my grandmothers recipe for onion sauce, a lovely mild mustard pickle. The veggies have all been harvested and uprooted now and we are down to our flowers...which were hit with a frost the other night which pretty well wiped them out.
|I love the pattern of the frost on the edge of the petals|
|Each marigold petal was outlined with delicate frost patterns|
|The leaves took on an added frosty beauty as well|
|But Lloyd's beautiful roses withstood the frost.|
|And the perfect rosebud lived through it.|
I'll be back.
