After the killing frost, I harvested the green tomatoes, green peppers, and volunteer potatoes.

The peppers were from purchased plants, the tomatoes from a volunteer that grew in one of the front yard herb and flower beds. The potatoes were volunteers scattered around the garden.
After the killing frost, we finished winterizing the billy barn.

Awning can be lowered at any time.
Our days have been lovely really, usually sunny with lows in the 30s and highs in the lower 60s. But we've had some cold winds blowing out of the northwest, and those frosts remind us that winter is right around the corner. The boys now have a snug spot to protect against wind, snow, and rain.
After the killing frost we lost Katy. The vet said her symptoms were consistent with poisoning, though the source is a mystery.

She's the only kitty I've had in the last 22 years that wanted to be a lap cat. I am so going to miss that.
