frost predicted

Harvests, Tomatoes, Watching the Seasons

Right on schedule – Oct 10 – a frost is predicted tonight. I thought it would be late this year, but no, right on time.

In the dusk, my husband and I picked all my green tomatoes and peppers, plus a few squash, watermelons, zucchinis, and one eggplant. We covered the beans and lettuce with row covers. It doesn’t seem cold enough for a frost to me, but it’s predicted so we’ll see.

My counters are covered with baskets! Peppers are in a trug on the floor. We’ll roast and freeze them this weekend. Not sure yet what I’ll do with the green tomatoes. In the past I’ve just saved them and all ripen up eventually. They give me a “fresh?” garden tomato salad for Thanksgiving usually.
