Frosty Night

We experienced our first frost of the season last night.  It was a hard one too.  What’s a body to do?  How about pitch a tent in the garden?


That’s what Sylvia and I did last evening as the sun was setting.  Call it a science experiment.  We are trying to keep our jalapeño plant alive until November 20.  (Typical first frost date for this area is October 20.)

We’ll see how our pepper plant survived when the tent is gone.  For my part, faith and hope continue . . .

  1. What an amazing plant…Can you tell me how many jalapeno peppers that you harvested from that one plant??? You must have a freezer full of them . Some day, maybe I will be brave and try a bite of jalapeno !!!!!

    • We estimate around 200 peppers from that one plant. There were three others, but they were not quite that bountiful. We gave a lot of them to friends.

      Victory goes to the brave and the bold. :beam:

  2. You got the idea from Shakespeare, right?

    “Now is the winter of our discount tent.” :laff:
