Gardens and the Big Freeze

I planted tomatoes in the fall. They grew big and wonderful. And green. Not red, but green. I tried everything to hurry them along, but they insisted on staying green. When the big freeze was predicted to start, I picked all the green tomatoes. Some had already started to rot near the ground because we had already had very cool weather during the nights. I picked 40 or 50 tomatoes and brought them inside. Some of them are turning, but some will probably refuse.

I covered the mustard greens during the freeze and they look to be doing okay now that they are uncovered. We eat a lot of mustard greens in this house and we’d eat even more if I could grow it reliably. It’s really too cold to garden, but when has that ever stopped me? I bought some lemon balm seeds and parsley seeds today. I’ll start them in the window. Their little green fronds will cheer me up–especially during the next freeze! We’ll likely have a few more freezes during Jan and Feb. After that I can be more serious about putting in tomatoes. And more mustard greens. I can start hoping the raspberry plants made it and the blueberry bush and the lemon tree.

What do you have growing in the window this winter???
