In fact, speaking of 'that time of year' - get a look at what we had waiting for us in the yard this morning -
Yup, the first frost of the season!!!! Yippee!!! It is the latest 'first frost' I remember experiencing in the valley!!
It wasn't too bad a frost, but my tomatoes did take a pretty big hit. Sadly, they are just alittle too far behind to bother covering every night. They need another few weeks before they truly start to produce for us, so I've picked off the biggest ones, cover the plum tomatoes by the house and hope for the best.
Honestly, as much as I love vine ripened tomatoes, I love this more -
And 'that' needs cold and frost to thrive!! So bring it on!!
These shots were taken this morning - and although you can't see it in the pictures, there was a new little gal up front.
My friend Henning Bartel of Arctis carts has been up from California visiting this weekend. He brought one of his carts up for us to play with and we have been having a great time! (The photos were taken over two days, which is why some dogs appear again in different teams).

One more morning of playing this morning before Henning and his VERY well behaved Siberians head back for California!!
