So with our temperatures dropping into the low 20’s at night, our plants in the greenhouse croaked. We had placed a little heater and light out there and were enjoying fresh tomatoes and hot peppers until now.
Now all I will be enjoying is fresh swiss chard that is still alive in our garden. It has survived the frosts so far and a trimming by the sheep. The sheep escaped into the backyard this morning, since Tom forgot to latch the gate after a farrier visit yesterday. I found bits of swiss chard well away from the garden but not chewed up. I guess our sheep do not like chard.
And I finally got a photo of DC, our accidental lamb. He was born September 24th so technically was one of the autumn babies, but I could not get a decent photo of him to include him in that blog post. He’s not a friendly sheep, and every previous photo of him was of him fleeing. Tom actually caught him today for his photo shoot.
