First Freeze

La Famiglia

“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter woods.”

 -Henry Beston-

29.5 Degrees. Today marks the first freeze.  The change of the season. And hidden in the smoky air the crispness of fall looms.

I was able to pick all the ripe tomatoes and harvest another crop of basil before the freeze took hold last night.  Although I fear I am going to lose at least 100lbs of tomatoes and a great amount of basil I feel as if I have gotten out what I have put into the farm this season.
