The First Killing Frost

I had planned to cover the peppers as tonight was to be the coldest night before the weather warmed back up but a sad surprise greeted me at the garden today. The last of the peppers and eggplant had been struck down by Jack Frost.
We gleaned the plants and I will be preserving them in the coming days.
The lettuce came through as it is a little tougher however, in preparing for  the mid 20's tonight a row cover was placed over it. Notice the kale to the left? It is beautiful. Time for kale chips. Yum.
