Baby It's Cold Outside

This morning was a chilly one. 3 C (37 F) and with the wind chill, 0 C (32 F). Brrrrr.

The boys asked if we could dig out mitts for them. Fortunately, the temperature is supposed to go back up for the rest of the week. I won't need to start looking for the winter gear quite yet.

Also, fortunately, my little garden has a few more days without a frost threat. Good thing, because all of a sudden


Tomatoes!


I had all but given up on these plants. They grew so tall and had all sorts of blooms, but no tomtatoes, until now. Three little ones.


We have been enjoying these ones already. This is from my 50 cent tomato plant. The tomatoes are smaller, but very nice. This plant has produced over 12 tomatoes! The leaves are starting to yellow, but the tomatoes are still turning.



My strawberries are still producing as well. In fact, they look really good and have sent out numerous runners. Next year should be a good year for strawberries.

There are still carrots growing. I assume if there is frost, I just dig the remainder up. I was hoping to let them grow a bit more.



My little garden has grown in two months.




















And I'm not ready for it to be done yet. Still holding on to those last few warm days.

Wow! How opposite our weather is, it's been about 100 here the last couple days and the heat wave is supposed to last through Wednesday! We never did get any strawberries out of our plant this year, I'm kind of bummed, I thought that would be fun!

Yum! how cute, I so want to have a garden next year, even if it's a small one. I only got 3 tomatoes this year {sad} I love home grown veggies and such. They really are the best! Hope your garden doesn't disappear too fast!

I am so in love with your garden! And your skills at taking such lovely photos of the things growing in it. All your pics are so vibrant! Amazing!! I seriously need to take a lesson from you and do something in the garden next year. We have this lovely backyard and I'm utterly clueless as to how to grow things in it :)!!!!
