We had our first frost on Sunday the 13th.

The Marigolds were hit hard.

David is dumping all of the pole bean and pea pots onto a plot he is currently working up.

Because the tiller repair is progressing slowly, he is working this ground up with a shovel.

David acknowledged that he is feeling this job in his abs.16_1117_fj_dig216_1117_fj_dig316_1117_fj_dig4

 

16_1118_fj_shed2The roof of the garden shed has been leaking. David donned his roofer’s cap and started to work on it. When he went to get some wood from the basement a stream of water met him; a cold water pipe was leaking. Now he will have to don his plumber’s cap as well.  16_1118_fj_shed

After David removed the the weeds around the raised beds we covered up the tunnels.
