The frost came early and hard. It did some damage, but I managed to save the tomatoes, pumpkins and some squash by tarping them in.

I was a bit late. The frost was already forming, and these tarps didn’t do much good. Thank goodness it warmed up again later in the night/early morning.

The vines look quite dead, but almost all of the pumpkins are fine and can be harvested later at leisure – before the next frost.

And now I’ve gotten most of the sunflowers (for the birds) and sweet corn standing again too.
