Cold weather protection
Up Go the Row Covers!
Winter preparations are in full force here on the urban homestead, making sure all the garden is protected from the cold weather. Last night it was 36 degrees. As our ongoing efforts to conserve, we still didn’t fire up the wood stove… yet.

One of the remnant summer tomato bed needed to be removed to make way for a second succession of fall winter crops. Another round of fried green tomatoes are on the menu this week. If that doesn’t help use these green beauties up I’ll either make a batch of green salsa and do what I’ve always done before — stick a few in a paper bag and put it in our old fashion California Cooler Cabinet (our urban homestead’s so lucky to still have one!) to slowing ripen.
