The young in the ruin of the old

Dead eggplant, live Nicotiana

Light frost is coming over night lately, just enough to finish off the eggplants, which haven’t been looking too hot in the first place.The flowering tobacco at its feet is holding up, for no good reason.

Flowers still standing

I had no idea it was so hardy. There it is, still flowering with the sweet alyssum, next to snapdragons holding up hope for one late hurrah of blossom. Don’t laugh. The snapdragons are pretty tough. It would be pretty silly if they flowered now, though. The bees are gone to sleep.

Garlic sprouts

But the garlic is just waking up!
