It has been a glorious fall despite the dryness. The garden is throwing its last big party before the frost and freeze predicted for this weekend. The tomatoes, peppers, and basil must be picked. The geranium pots, elephant ears, dahlias and brugmansia need to be covered at night. I can’t quite let them go yet … too much color.
