First Frost of the Season

Strawberries with a dusting of frost this morning.
This weekend we got our first two frosts. Our winter weather starts pretty late in this part of California, but eventually it does start. On Friday I did one final harvest of eggplants, peppers, and green tomatoes and with that we said farewell to summer. We've covered up many of our fall plants to protect them from the frost, and most of them are very cold hardy. The kale and broccoli did look sad early this morning under the frost, but a few hours later they have already recovered. Onward, to the fall veggies! We've got lots of cabbage, kale, beets, chard, broccoli, peas, and more.

Broccoli and kale weighed down with frost. Don't fret, they have already recovered.

Several awesome cabbages are ready for harvest!
