Jack Frost visited my garden

Sometime late Friday night or early Saturday morning, the temperature dipped below freezing, ending up at thirty degrees or lower by morning.  Heavy frost coated the garden until the sun hit it, and I found this damage later.

I missed some of the green tomatoes.  These were from plants I set out in mid-August; note to self: get the late tomatoes out in July next year!

These dalhia plants have bloomed since June or July.  The tubers are still alive under the ground and the plants will come back next year.

Inside my cold frame, the spinach and lettuce are happy.

Broccoli and cabbage, unprotected in the garden, don’t mind the frost, either.
