Frost and Our Weekend

I know the general rule when you don’t post for a couple of days is to just start posting again and not to reflect, but I have been home sick for a couple of days now and am just recovering. I should be back to my normal self next week, but right now I am taking things slow.

This weekend, our biggest decision will be where to move the coffee table. We have one in our family room, but now that Baby Bird is running around more, we want to move it to a room that has less traffic.

Last night was our first frost warning. So Papa Bird being the wonderful husband that he is, covered my tomatoes for me. Everything else succumbed to the frost this morning. For the most part, it’s okay. Everything else was pretty much underground (potatoes, carrots, onions). The pumpkin is gone, but I didn’t expect to get anything before Halloween anyway off of it.

I am however saddened by the loss of my Ground Cherries and my Cape Giant Gooseberries. I grabbed some fruits from both withered plants and will attempt to start them indoors really early next year. In Edmonton you are taking a chance if your crop ripens in September (sometimes even in August). I don’t have any pictures to go with this post. I didn’t have the heart to take any.

And after all of Papa Bird’s hard work, were not completely sure of the fate of our tomatoes. Regardless, they were all picked today as I don’t think they will make it through the next two frost warnings over the following two nights.
