First Frost of the Season

The hills of Boerne had its first frost this past weekend and although the temperature warmed up into the mid 70's later in the day, it was a beautiful, but chilly, way to begin a fall day.

And the fall vegetable garden doesn't mind the frost.  In fact, the cabbage, broccoli, beets and Brussels sprouts actually like a frost.  It does something to the vegetables to make them a bit tastier.  And it's so pretty too :)

Frost-covered lantana

And beautiful old boy Tyson is always close by as I made my way around the property this frosty fall morning.


  1. It really wasn't that cold...only about 30 degrees; but it was a beautiful morning!

    Thanks for visiting!

  2. We have had milder than usual weather here in the Pacific North West.Our summer was almost a non-event and the veggies were pitiful. Oh well! there is always next year.

  3. Wow! Your winter veggies make me jealous -- I'm moving to a new garden this winter and haven't been able to do my fall plantings. Nice job catching the frost before it melts, too!

  4. Thanks for visiting Keewee and Eliza! This has been a pretty good year for my garden; although not my best. But I'm not's all been fun!

  5. The lantana looks very nice covered in frost!
    Hope your vegetables grow nicely

  6. Thanks! I love your little garden in Japan blog!
