We were forecast for a freeze last night so I picked and picked and picked. I pulled tomatoes (obviously), cantaloupes, cucumbers, watermelons, onions, beets, corn, peppers and my geraniums. I pulled all the potted plants in and covered all the beans. The kitchen is piled with produce. And-no freeze. Super.
(By the way, this is what about 80 pounds of tomatoes looks like. This isn't including all the tomatoes we have already enjoyed. Wow! The only other time I grew tomatoes I got two cherry-sized tomatoes total from two plants. This year I planted seven plants. In spite of the late start we are thrilled with the results.)
