I know what I'm doing today.
Weather is always such a "hot" topic here. Last week we had 90 degrees. Last night it hit 20. Brrr.....I did get the furnace fired up yesterday. So we had heat. PTL But, of course, my pumpkins didn't have a furnace. My garden is so large that I couldn't cover even 1/4 of the freezable stuff. I covered most of the tomatoes and peppers, but even then the frost was so hard that I don't know if it helped. I'm not going out there until about 10:00 to survey the damage. The poor sunflowers wrapped their leaves around themselves tight, but alas, they just froze that way.
So today it's pick and pull time. Tomatoes, peppers, squash, pumpkins and watermelons. We're having an abbreviated school day and heading out. I have some pickle relish started this morning and I need to put up some applesauce today. I think, if the tomotoes survived, I probably have to put up some salsa. I think the peppers might be toast. They were so far off of the ground, and the plastic cover blew off some of them. Thus ends my garden. I still have fall broccoli and lettuce coming. Lots of carrots and beets and a couple of cabbage lefr. Time to till, mulch and fertilize.
May I do all to the glory of God.
