Beating the Fall Frost

We all know that gardening in a cold climate isn’t for the faint of heart. With the threat of a frost as early as the beginning of September, we have to look for techniques to extend our growing season as much as possible, especially if we have unripe tomatoes or peppers in the ground. 

To that end, I have two videos for you today: my first video shows how I keep harvesting peppers off of the vines long after the first hard frost hits and my second video shows you my double layer system of covers that helps beat a hard frost.

Enjoy the videos and then let me know (in the comments below) what successes or failures you have had with season extension in the fall!
