Jack Frost comes to the gardens

I awoke to frost on the ground. The mums were dusted heavily, they do not mind a little bit of frost.
The marigolds were beautiful in the first rays of sunlight. They will wither now.
Squashes are finished growing for this year, gourds will begin ripening off. It is time to remove the tomato vines. It is time for the soil to rest.
Jack Frost is early this year. I never expect him before October 15th.
