First Frost 2013

The grass is crispy underfoot this morning and everything is covered with a sparkly layer of frost.  I brought my little containers of sage and rosemary indoors, and last night picked most of the peppers and tomatoes.  The ones that are unripe will be wrapped in newspapers for several days. The rest will be chopped or blended this afternoon and put into the freezer.

Anasazi beans

Red cabbage

Sunflowers with frosty leaves

Discovered a Butternut squash has split.  Not sure what causes that to happen.
