No I'm not decorating for Halloween just yet.

I have sheets and blankets scattered all over my yard.  No, I'm not decorating for Halloween.  They are covering what is left of my garden plants I am hoping to salvage for another week or so.  Tonight the temperatures are suppose to tumble into the 20's and 30's with a freeze warning for our area.  At this point I'm not sure sheets and blankets will be enough.  The sad part is we are expected to get warmer temperatures again this weekend.  I am still harvesting broccoli and tomatoes on a regular basis.  My brussel sprouts haven't gotten big enough yet to pick and the celery is getting close.  I was hoping the cold weather would hold out a little while longer to allow these crops with a longer growing season more time to develop.  We will have to see what mother nature has to say in the morning.   It's times like these I really wish I had a green house.
