So, Winnipeg got frost yesterday morning.
Its just a matter of time now and it will be heading our way. My husband suggested we pick a large amount of our tomatoes this weekend, and sadly, I have to agree with him. We had 14 heirloom tomato plants last year that succumbed miserably to frost last year, and that is not the same fate I want for the 13 heirloom tomatoes we have this year.
This has been such a fun summer for Little Bird. She is old enough to understand more about our garden, and she had two plants of her own this year. We are not giving up our ‘summer’ without a fight though and we are hanging on to every last warm day.
We still get outside as much as we can. We have been going for walks to our local playground, playing in the yard and eating on our deck any chance we can get. I don’t know about you, but fall makes me appreciate being outdoors more. Its because I can feel that slight bite of winter in each breeze. When we take our girls out on a walk, we search for ‘treasures’. This can be anything from colourful berries that fell to the ground (make sure your little ones know NOT to eat them), to leaves, to little toy cars that someone has lost in the sand at the playground (we give those a loving home in the sandbox in our back yard). It is a lot of fun and keeps our oldest busy while we chat about our days.
This month, Disney Junior is keeping outdoor adventures alive in it’s programming too. Starting next week for a whole week (Sept 19 – 23, starting at 5PM ET) it is Izzy’s Adventure Week on Jake and the Neverland Pirates. All week, you can join Izzy on an exciting pirate adventure.
Have you been soaking up as much summer as you can?
