Good to hear it's still hanging on. We got a frost last week. I pulled everything but the cabbage Saturday. and put the garden to bed.
Got a nice mess of peppers, both sweet and Jalepeno. The Cabbage is still in the ground, they will take the cold till we get a hard freeze.
In the past I have brushed snow off the brussel Sprouts and picked the mso don't give up too soon on them.
The root crops will be safe until the ground freezes.

Down to tomatoes, and keeping them going by covering with heavy plastic. Just wanna have "November Maters" once in my life. Never even had October tomatoes ever before, but due to the severe hot summer, they really didn't take off till September. Still blooming too!

Not sure it the sweet potatoes will be any good now that it's been cold for so long . I've been working 16 hr shifts since Sat. and might be for a few more days . I'll dig them out as soon as I can . Maybe with the snow cover it will sort of insulate them from the low 30 degree temps that we had the last few days .

I think mine is pretty well done. Wife said she got one head of cabbage. The Deer ate the rest?
Guess they don't know they are taking their life in their own hands eating my kraut?

Al, I dug the rest of our potatoes last Saturday before the big storm went through. I lost a few that were close to the surface due to frost damage. You may be OK if they are well covered. Still got to get the carrots out and the parsnips. Otherwise it's done for the year.
