There was a frost warning a few nights ago that didn't materialize, but with tonight's 33Ã‚Âº, tomorrow night's 33Ã‚Âº, and night after's 32Ã‚Âº, we're sure to get killing frost. Alert this morning said FREEZE alert, but was revised to FROST advisory.
I had almost decided to let the hot peppers die off, and not pick green tomatoes any more, so what was I doing this afternoon when I should've been getting ready for trick-or-treaters?
... out digging up the hot peppers and putting them temporarily in plastic grocery bags (I'm finding them to be handy dig and transport containers for sharing plants, etc.) and hustling them in the garage, then setting up a spare shop light to give them a little extra light!
I also picked a grocery bag full of green tomatoes and a couple of fully colored tomatoes that were hiding under the foliage.
Also dug up forgotten patches of peanuts. Only a couple of dozen but still, harvest is harvest, right?
