This is the extent of my autumn garden right now; a few little Swiss Chard plants. We had frost on the ground this morning, and it has been about 20 degrees below normal every day for two weeks now. We have had a lot of rain, almost seven inches at our house in a 24 hour period.

The roses continue to bloom and I still have plenty of parsley (despite the continued presence of caterpillars on the plant) and chives. As cold as it has been, I think it is safe to go ahead and plant the garlic and grape hyacinths, just as soon as I have a few free moments from school.
