Hard Frost

Here in Menomonie on Tues. Sept.29, we were warned of a coming frost and we did indeed get a killing frost. The zucchini plant is black,but we got plenty off it. We picked tomatoes and green peppers and some of the squash and pumpkins. The rutabagas did very well this summer. They love the cold and the grubs did not thrive, so I did not even need to treat them. We thank the Lord for a wonderful harvest. We will still need to harvest the root crops like potatoes and beets and rutabagas.
