After four weeks of freezing nights we are still harvesting food from our garden.

We have been covering the plants with tarps each night to protect them from the frost and extend our growing season. This has worked out very well this year.

The other day though it stayed in the 30s all day and got down into the 20s at night. This was too much for everything but the cold hardy plants and the pepper plants. Everything else died on that night.

I was able to harvest a lot of vegetables yet though from our garden. The peppers are producing nicely even now. They are still flowering too. I got about 15 bell peppers and about a dozen jalapenos along with some banana peppers.

I got a bunch of cherry tomatoes from the dead plants. I got a nice handful of green beans which were still producing and flowering until the other day when it was just too cold for them.

We are harvesting potatoes all along now as needed from our own garden.

And we are eating kale all the time along with other green vegetables.

Once we are totally finished with the garden we are going to cover it all with layers of mulch and cardboard. I plan to run cardboard through the mulching machine to cover the garden and kill off all the weeds. Then I will cover that with mulch.

We are saving all the tree bark from splitting and cutting fire wood. It all goes into a pile. When I get the mulching machine running I will run the tree bark through it and put the mulch on the garden.

We will also use chicken manure on top of all that to provide more nutrients over the winter.
