Can't beat a Brussel sprout after the frost.  Before that I think they are to bitter.  I've found that in late summer I pick all the old golf ball and larger sizes off the bottom and throw in composter.  It allows for more little ones to "sprout".

No frost last night, oh well.  The sprouts will have to wait.  I let them grow all winter, cover them with straw and pull them in the spring (stems).  Took the big black dog for his morning walk (and poop).

I left New Orleans and come home to this chilly weather!   forgot to pack a jacket even, cause when I left it was still nice here. 

I have wild mums blooming - and the rest of my fall and late summer stuff looks good even after the frost..

Don't worry, it won't tomorrow.  I went and plucked all the green peppers I could.  We had a very heavy frost last night.  I'll give it about a week and I'll start picking brussels sprouts.  The vines are loaded.

I have a lot of peppers yet so I’ve been covering the garden. Still need to dehydrate the hot ones.
