This morning there was frost on car windscreens and the water which collects on the top of one on my compost bins had frozen over.
My daughter carved our Halloween pumpkin yesterday… Yes, you read that right. It was finally ripened and now I have made a few jars of pumpkin preserve with it. These will go to a colleague who fell in love with the stuff last year.
One job I have done outside though is pick a whole bunch of cayenne peppers. Now it’s got cold, I don’t want to lose them to frost. At the same time, there are still a few babies on the plant, which is doing its best to flower as well, so out of curiosity I’m going to see what happens.
