Frost

Our first frost came this week, Monday night, and it froze hard.
Johnathan & I spent the night before in the garden until dark, picking as many green beans as we could. 
We covered a few tomato plants & tucked in our pumpkins.
And we woke to this:

I forgot my hen & chicks all outside, and they got frosty.

They tolerated it just fine, but the beans, tomato plants, & pumpkin vines are blackened & finished for the season.
I've started building fires in the living room the last 2 or 3 nights. 
And Beau & Johnathan have broke out the winter hats for their morning walk to the bus!
