Garden Cover-Up

Last weekend in addition to re-potting tomato seedlings I grew from seed, I also planted several varieties of tomato plants I purchased at my favorite garden store. I waited until after May 15th this year to plant (historically the last frost date),  a few weeks later than I normally do as we have had a really late Spring.

Just when the warm weather looked like it was here for the season, we are having a cold-snap with a freeze warning tonight! 
I moved a few planters into the garage.

I also put a couple under the sheets, in between the two rows of tomato plants.
One planter was left out in the open and I put one into my mini-greenhouse.

It should be interesting to see how my garden fares.

Two of the plants I bought and put into the ground already have fruit growing. Hopefully they will survive the weekend.

Weekend highs are predicted to be between 67-72 degrees. 

 At least my lettuce and peas are happy!

Annual Update

It has been almost a year since I posted to this blog.  Nothing earth-shattering has happened this past year.
I became more active on FaceBook and decided to take a break here. The one thing I've missed is being able to document my life in short stories. I also miss keeping up with the bloggers that I had been following.

The above picture is of my garden, taken a few days ago which doesn't look remarkably different from my last post. Sometimes life feels that way, until I look at my boys. Change is slow, but what a difference a year makes.

Hopefully I'll be back soon!
