First Freeze

This might pass for one of two things.


Halloween ghosts in my garden.


Or  children's forts for play.


It's neither.  We are experiencing our first freeze of the season and I am trying to hang on to my lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, jalapeno, and my lemon tree.  The onions, garlic and celery got a thick layer of shredded leaves to help them keep warm and should be fine.


If I had not run out of sheets, I probably would have made an effort to save the zucchini, but I didn't, and doubt it will make it.  The cucumber is at the end, so I let it go as well.  I will remove the sheets tomorrow in time for the inevitable Texas warm up.
