Surprisingly the grass/weeds in the yard were just over a foot high after 6 weeks of neglect. The grass/weeds in the gravel driveway was mostly tall dandelions that pull out easily.
I found all of my tomato plants and pepper plants hiding among the weeds in the raised beds. There was a bit of frostbite on a few leaves, but they will survive. The deer had gotten into the bolted endive and lettuce. Guess they thought I had left them a "salad bar."
Two raised beds clear and ready for production, and time to go out and work on a couple more. Temps are in the 50's F right now, but by lunch I will be "glistening."
No before or after photos. Just some work out in the morning dew.
Bring on the boots! No flip flops this morning!
