Well tonight is the first frost warning of the season. The Midwest girl in me just insists that August isn’t time for the end of summer, and I am not going to call it quits. My flowers are just coming into their own and some are just getting ready to bloom for the first time. I have not yet got one ripe tomato off my plants and they are full of many possibilities. So I got tarps out for my flower gardens, covered my tomato pots with garbage bags, and thrown towels over my deck planters. I ran a little short on tarps so I have a few feet of my flower wall that is going to risk the elements. It looks a little trashy but for the night it is worth it to keep the summer going a little longer. Keep your fingers crossed that this clear high altitude night doesn’t get as cool as predicted.
