Drats, folks, I have to say the "f" word. FROST!!! What did you think I meant? Twice during the last week we received a light frost, but nothing that did any damage to the vegetables still growing in containers. Today I harvested all the tomatoes, red and green, some oregano and parsley, green peppers and carrots. I brought in the basil and geranium and covered the fuchsia. Tonight I covered the remaining oregano and parsley with a sheet as we now have an official frost warning. Lows near 4 Celsius, which could just as easily dip below zero, especially in outlying areas. Mittens or driving gloves are recommended for the morning, folks. Autumn has arrived, though not officially until Friday, September 23, as shown in the table below. And you know what that means....right?
Fall - Autumn begins on ...
