Killing frost


We finally had a killing frost on October 28. Dahlias and cannas have been dug and are drying before going down into the cellar. The little grape tomatoes that we enjoyed so much are mush now and it is time to clean up the vines. I pulled the green bean plants a couple of days ago. There are still small carrots coming along and amazingly we got two yams! Imagine yams in upstate New York.

Now on Halloween we have a guest like this one visiting in the garden pond. Very strange. (I wonder if this is his costume.) He was so cold sitting there in the half sunshine that he held still for a dozen or so photos before finally diving for the bottom.
