There's Frost on the Pumpkins

There was a light frost last night and predictions of more for tonight so we harvested a load of pumpkins that were ripe enough.
Then we put floating row covers over the rest of the pumpkins and squash patch hoping to give enough protection to let the rest of the crop mature a bit more before we take it in.
Meanwhile, in the house the cats curled up in their chairs in front of the stove, a sure sign of cooler weather. Above are Chas and Sarah. Sarah is the feline matriarch of the farm having turned 19 last spring.
