ice ice baby...

So about 6am this morning as I let the dog out, I decided to meander around the garden... a favorite morning pastime!  And there... in the bird bath... a thin layer of ice!!!

But alas the garden looks fine!  Must be the ambient heat from my gravel paths...  the rest of this week is forecasted to be in the 40s at night. Whew...

I grabbed my little bucket and began the day's harvest of tomatoes, royal burgundy beans (mild tasting and delicious... a definite redo for next year!), lettuce, baby carrots, and some beet greens (to be added to my morning smoothie with some frozen fruit!)

My mom shared some of her red plums with me!  I got them all washed up and will be steam juicing them shortly for Plum Jelly!  Yum!

I happened to catch a youtube video about creating a high poly tunnel for the garden... so now I'm in dream mode...


  1. I'm amazed you can get those tomatoes to ripen in enough time before the frosts!

  2. Ribbit, we've probably got another 3 or 4 weeks until a hard frost.. until... I'll just cover up my precious tomatoes!

  3. Nice haul on the plums. Plum jelly...another something I had never heard of.

  4. Cheryl, Plum jelly is FANTASTIC! Email me your address and I'll send you a little jar!

  5. Whoa, I had to read that twice Toni! A thin layer of Ice!!!! Wow!

  6. Ack Ice! We are a long way until that happens. I usually get a frost sometime in late October (at the old house, I think the new house will be close to the same).

  7. I enjoyed your video of your hoophouse. I need to show this to my hubby so we can build one.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Hi Rosey! No, it's NOT my hoophouse! I found the video on YouTube. I WANT one though!!! I'm dreaming of having one!
