A Ghost?

This first day of fall is a bit early for Halloween shenanigans, but it just may bring our first snow! Under that light weight "row cover" is this:
Yep, my artichoke plant is still going strong and has about 13 buds on it now! I'm hoping we'll avoid a hard freeze for a few more weeks and give this beauty a bit more growing time.

The koi will stay frisky for a while yet, despite the cool air temperatures, but we've already cut back on their daily food allotment....

Well, we dodged the bullet: no snow for us last night. That's OK, more growing time for the 'chokes!
