The temperatures outside are not just chilly – they are COLD (21 degrees outside yesterday morning in my garden).
You may recall that I wrote about picking the green tomatoes off my vines a few weeks before the first frost appeared.
I had quite a few.
The gifts are wrapped and the house is decorated for Christmas.
I do still have to clean my house and start baking goodies for Christmas Eve dinner. My mother-in-law is bringing her famous lasagna, so I only have to focus on side dishes and dessert – yum!
I am fairly prepared for the holidays at this point. Tonight, we are expected to experience our first freeze of the season. I needed to harvest the remaining green peppers and tomatoes today before they were harmed by the frost. So, I went out this morning to my vegetable garden to harvest the remaining green bell peppers on my two pepper plants and my tomatoes.
