frost date

as our frost date approaches (farmer's almanac claims this is tomorrow) I have been harvesting our vegetables and delicate herbs before the cold claims their leaves black, their fruits shriveled.  

my favorite tomatoes this season are pink bumblebee. an heirloom cherry tomato. It has the perfect acidity and produces pretty pink almost striped fruits. these plants were prolific for us and I have managed to save many seeds for next year. 

today, my daughter and I pulled the last of our carrots. 13 pounds of a beautiful bounty.
