Autumn, part 2, begins

A vigorous killing frost laid waste to the last of the tender summer plants in the vegetable garden.

RIP squash vines

I harvested the last of the peppers before they could get zapped,

then planted garlic bulbs in the empty pepper beds.

New birds in the garden today, all refugees from the north that will stay with us for the winter: dark-eyed junco, yellow-bellied sapsucker, and white-throated sparrow.
