this is early for a hard frost/freeze. we usually can get to November. we're in a protected area around Philadelphia and the Delaware River, so we might not get the freeze but it will be close.
Half of the pumpkins grew over the fence in the neighbor's yard. we told them they can have the pumpkins on their side, but they are still out there. I wanted to harvest them but buzz wouldn't let me.

We're not going to get a freeze of any kind until November. Coldest overnight temp so far has been 34, but it's not going to be that cold again for a while... it's 75 right now and frickin' gorgeous, except for the fact that we kind of need it to get cold. They can't harvest sugar beets when it's this warm because the plant can only process so many per day. Normally they pile them up in the cold and let them freeze, but if they take them out of the ground when it's not freezing, they start to ferment/lose sugar. Not sure what the status of barley is but they're not hauling it yet either.

Hard frost expected tonight so I had to harvest the butternut squash and the pumpkin/butternut cross that grew in the compost.
27 butternuts (53.5 lbs.)
19 pumpkins (not weighed yet, but should be at least 50 lbs)
the pumpkins are in the greenhouse to finish ripening.

it was a great season for winter squashes.

 
I'm hoping to get some of those this year. Haven't had very good luck skill with those here and they usually end up fried by a hot wind.

It's been a warm spring so I started planting out tomatoes even though the traditional advice is not to plant until Melbourne Cup day, which is 2 weeks away.
