Back Forty

late cold front

Yep, a cold front is coming in this weekend and lows are expected to be 38 Saturday and Sunday nights.

But now the tomatoes are nicely hardened off, having survived one 38 degree night naked and then a 35-degree night under plastic. And the eggplants are nestled down under a Reemay blanket. I’m going to mulch them heavily with straw this afternoon.

I have been patient enough not to plant squash, basil, okra, and beans, so I think that I should get good sense points for that.
