    Default First freeze last night

    The squash is gone, and some of the tomatoes plants are dead, but most
    would come back if I pruned them. Same with the okra. (it's too late
    in the year to prune them and expect any more fruit; another cold snap
    will wipe them out before then)

    The peppers look almost OK, just burned back at the tips. They are
    Capsicum baccatum -- not Aji Lemon of Peru, but a larger Ají Amarillo
    variety, and are a little more hardy than Capsicum annuums.

    I'm thinking about making one batch of salsa using green tomatoes, just
    to use them up and to see how it works. Do you think I should try to
    peel them, like ripe tomatoes? Or just quarter and slice them? Or
    maybe blenderize them like tomatillos?

    I have no opinion, but let me know what you did and how it worked. I
    picked a bunch of green tomatoes late yesterday afternoon in
    anticipation of the frost. Good thing, I guess. My plants look fine
    but there was a sheen of frost on the lawn this morning.

    Green toms don't have good flavour like reds, I wouldn't use them in salsa.Maybe better in omelettes.
