First Freeze

I always have mixed emotions when this morning comes.
The first freeze arrived this morning.
Leaving all of the garden's plants drooping and done for the season.
With just a little life left, I know the canning season is over for what ever did not get picked.
I will miss my full pumpkin patch and the fruits on all the different garden plants.
 I am grateful for all the tomatoes that we were able to can this year.
The Salsa Verde from the Tomatillo plants, Zucchini Bread and Cookies from our very abundant plants, and Spaghetti Squash wow we had some easy and yummy dinners from this great squash.
I will also miss the onions, bell peppers,  jalapenos and fresh tomatoes for salads and sandwiches and fresh salsa (pico de gallo).

As dependable as our God, so the changing of the seasons. Where has the year gone?!

That first freeze always makes me so sad. I feel like so much gets wasted. At least we get to enjoy gardens while they last. We are so lucky. My family in Texas can't grow all that we do because of the extreme heat. Only citrus.
