Well, we knew it was coming but mom and dad thought they could cover the tomatoes and shut the greenhouse door and all would be fine. Not so my furless friends. The frost hit with a vengeance. Nothing was safe last night. The temperature got down to -4C…which is 28.7F. The tomatoes were frozen….that’s what you get for insisting they be vine ripened, mom. We now have frozen tomatoes sitting on the dining room table. A whole mess of green and red tomatoes. I don’t think anything will help them now but mom and dad are ever hopeful.
The only plants left in the greenhouse are the Leeks. Mom will have to dry them very shortly. It is not recommended to freeze them as they can become bitter nor to can them, however the book didn’t say why not.
The tomatpes that can be saved are going to be made into tomato sauce with our own peppers.
Do you know what is still going strong?
You guessed it….my CATNIP!
