Oct 30 2011 - Garden Journal (Day 205) – It’s Almost a Wrap

After a second frost last night, I pulled just about everything that remained in the garden. All that’s left are the leeks and parsley. They’re either more tolerant of the cold or in a good spot and didn’t get frostbit like the other plants.

Since I still have a good amount of parsley, I’ll be pulling it some time in the next week to dry it for parsley flakes. Hopefully the leeks hold out until I have a chance to use them all (about six plants remaining.)

I pulled the wild cherry tomato plant today as well. There were still a lot of tomatoes on it…at least 30…not bad for a plant I didn’t do a thing with. Maybe I’ll plant another one in the same place next year (next to the house).
