Frost Warning

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.

  1. Wow, and our tomatoes are getting to the end. Of course all of the rain kind of wrecked allot of peoples. Arnie’s Roma”s have just kept going.

  2. We had that trashy yard theme going last night, too, but it paid off. Want make a bet if we’re going to get any ripe tomatoes before the big one hits? I have lots of really green ones that look as though they have no intention of ripening!

I'd love it if you let me know what you thought of this post.
