Weather wise, today is one of those days I just can’t find anything to complain about. It’s the first day of November, and I am sitting here with the window open.
After a fairly mild but cloudy morning, the sun came out. I am sitting here this afternoon with the temperature hovering near 70 ℉. It’s one of those uncommon chances to get some fresh air into the house during the fall. I absolutely would love to see some snow, but at this time of the year it’s gone as fast as it falls, and it’s more of a wasted snow setup than anything else.
So far, this fall has been a fairly mild one. Sure, we’ve had some seasonably cool nights and days, but for the most part, it’s been pretty mild. I think October wound up statistically near normal for the temperature.
Even though it has gotten below freezing our strawberry plants are holding their own and they’re slowly shutting down for the winter. There are still a few berries and even flowers but the leaves have gotten smaller.
Our tomato plant that took over everything is still holding its own too. It has plenty of tomatoes on it still. The one with the bigger tomatoes died, but the cherry tomato is still doing pretty well. Looking at the forecast, I guess it will be at least one more week of fresh tomatoes from the garden in my salads!
