The Big Chill

They have been predicting a major winter blast, and it arrived last night. Kitty and I covered the tomatoes last night just in case. The temp at 6am was 33. Hopefully everything survived unscathed. We did a sweep of the remaining green bean plants and easily found another dinner's worth. I'm also hoping that this cold snap was what typically happens. It WAS very early compared to other years, but not unheard of. Usually we get a freeze around Halloween, and then temps warm back up for a few weeks. I'm hoping this is like that. I'll be off to Mom's tomorrow and will leave the tomatoes uncovered. I see nothing in the forecast to make me worry about another (near) freeze.
