Last night was the first predicted frost of the season. Some of my gardening friends suggested that I pick all my remaining tomatoes and cover up my fall crops…just in case.
It was kind of sad to pull up all those plants that were so prolific and pretty, even though they were beginning to look a little pathetic… Now the garden looks strange and sad.

I am hoping all the tomatoes ripen as nicely in the basement as they were on the vine. I threw in a couple of apples on the advice of a friend on Facebook. I hope it works!
I was beginning to fear that I had done all that work in vain until Chris left for church this morning and his windshield was icy! Yay!
