Actually, I am still munching on the crab apples. The frost has been mild so far. We’ve been pouring dirtcrete walkways and they are doing well, though there was some frost on them this morning. Only patchy frost so far so stuff is actually still hanging in there. Lettuce is doing great and we still get a few wild mushrooms here and there. But more and more, the wild edibles around here are the 4-legged kind. Amazing number of squirrels here this year, though the mountain lions have cut the deer population since they came back in.
I tried the carrot burying thing, but it doesn’t stay cold enough here to store in-ground produce. It’s not really even cold enough to use the root cellar. Except when the tornadoes come over.
