Getting ready for a freeze

By Penny Stine

 

In anticipation of the possible frost coming our way tonight, I picked a few things from my garden.
It made me sad. Look at all those gorgeous green tomatoes! I need about another month. Maybe two.

They'll ripen on the counter, but it won't be the same as going out and finding a big, juicy red tomato on the vine. I left a few out on the vine because my bowl was full and one forecast said temps would only get down to 34. Hope springs eternal.

On the other hand, my gardening buddy, Jan of the awesome garden, gave me some of her cherry tomatoes because she has had all she can handle. I roasted two pans of them last night and will freeze them and use them all winter. The smell of roasting tomatoes is definitely one of the good things about autumn.
