As I look in my fridge I see that I am down to the last six of my summer grown tomatoes. I wonder if anybody out there expects to be eating home grown in december, or at Christmas?

I thought I would be [Eek!] We had a hard freeze early and everything in my little,unheated greenhouse turned to slime.My girlfriend up the block still has a flowering sungold in her greenhouse,she stuck a heater in the night of the freeze. [clappy] I'm just going to have to rob her [lala]

Yes, I need my fresh tomatoes from the garden year round. Folks around here plant a second crop in late summer for that purpose. Things can slow down during a cold spell and then really go great guns if/when it heats up.

Today it got up 80*, and I picked a few sungolds. There's another silvery fir tree just about ready and some early girls getting closer. Good times. [Smile]

According to my calculations, the problem doesn't exist.

Yep, gorgeous down here too. The nights are pretty cold and the past few nights I thought the wind would take the roof off.
Of edibles, all I have right now are my herbs, Quinalt strawberries and the Meyer lemon is covered with buds.
