Lemon Boy tomatoes are ripening indoors after risk of frost
I can't believe it, I thought to myself this morning as I turned yet another calendar page. Another month has passed and autumn looms right around the corner. It's impending visit is evidenced everywhere. In the red, orange and yellow hues that have taken the place of the once green foliage. My neighbour's Amur Maple shrub is already shimmering in her new autumn foliage. The mums are blooming, the foliage of ash trees are turning yellow, and yes, there are even leaves falling! Too soon, I say! Where did summer go? Did it even arrive? July and August have been unseasonably wet and much cooler here than one would expect. Last year on this day, Edmonton was 28 Celsius, today is forecasted to be 14 Celsius! Half as warm as last year! Huh!
