A frost warning??

Baby it's cold outside!! Parts of Maine have a frost warning tonight, with a freeze warning in the far northwest & mountains! It's been a cool summer, but a frost already? No wonder I don't have any ripe tomatoes yet! The forecast here calls for temps to drop to the low 40s. Good sleeping weather as they say....

Today I made my way reluctantly to the office, officially ending my summer vacation. It was great to see my colleagues, and my boss seemed really happy to see me, but as always I have mixed feelings about the end of the summer and the start of a new school year. The summers are never long enough to do all the tasks on my list, and I'm pretty unhappy that I haven't been able to can any tomatoes yet! I had big plans to get some tomatoes canned before the madness that is the beginning of the semester set in, but our cool summer has slowed things down.

Ah well, at least I'm all in one piece. My poor blogging pal Tracy from Outside fell and dislocated her shoulder the other day. Now that would just bite. At least she has ripe tomatoes.

Ali: I can't believe you have frost warnings! I just hope you can get some tomatoes harvested before that happens.

I have almost no ripe tomatoes either, so I feel your pain. We didn't get frost here. Were you spared?

So far, no frost, although the nights have been very cool. Still no signs of red from the many, many green tomatoes on the vines, though.
