Can Winter Be Far Away
The beginnings of my basement wood supply.
I only have about 1/3 of it in. Last night, Mother Nature reminded us to get going on such project. We had a killer frost. The tender plants in my garden are finished, touched by frost. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and squash dod not survive. I have been working on getting wood in. Thanks for the reminder, "Mother".
Salvaging what I can from the garden.
This five baskets of cucumbers are last of this years crop.
Plumb tomatoes I am trying to ripen indoors.
I have about 50 tomato plants that did not produce ripe fruit before the frost came. I am bringing them in the house to try to rippen them. Some I hope to rippen by hanging the whole plant in the basement. Others I will wrap in newspaper and keep in a dark place. Both these method are supposed to work. If not, I will be making a lot of things with green tomatoes.
