Unseasonable Harvest

Peppers from the Garden - Nov 3rd


Here is a cornucopia of vegetables, mostly green peppers, that would be damaged – make that ruined – by a frost. I gathered them on Nov 3rd, which is really late for this part of the US, Eastern Pennsylvania. Traditionally by now frosts would have put paid to every vegetable that is not snugly still ensconced in the earth. I cannot say unequivocably that this is yet more proof of climate change, but it is certainly good evidence. Gardeners as much as anyone notice how the seasons change. The growing season was certainly longer than ever this year, at both ends.
