Too Early

Today the temperature was in the low 80's, and here's what's next:

Monday, 12th:  58 high/43 low; 10% chance of precipitation.

Tuesday, 13th:  54 high/29 low; 20% chance of precipitation.

Wednesday, 14th:  49 high/29 low; 10% chance of precipitation

Thursday, 15th:  58 high/45 low; 0% chance of precipitation.

This means on Monday and Tuesday we'll have to harvest eveything that can be harvested.  It means we have to pick green tomatoes from 250 tomato plants!

Canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, salsa, spaghetti sauce, chili sauce, tomato juice, crushed tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato soup, tomato jam, tomato relish, ..., did I miss anything? Oh! Dried tomatoes! You are going to remain very industrious for days to come, aren't you! I don't think we'll get the frost in our region, but you're up the northern hinterlands. God's speed to you all!

Oh too bad, you will have to say good by to your beautiful flowers as well.
I hate a too early cold snap. Best wishes on fried green tomatoes! Karen in St Louis

It's the same here, and I'm scared of a really bad winter, long, bitter and lots of cold

working to preserve everything we can before it's all gone.
