Very Frosty And Still Cold

Today's haul: Nothing, didn't try.

While it felt a couple of degrees warmer, there was thicker frost everywhere – on grass, on our cars, everywhere.

Again, this can't be good for the plants.

Very Cold In SoCal!

Today's harvest: Nothing.

It was so cold this morning I didn't look for tomatoes.

There was a light frost on both our cars. There was snow in the mountains to the north. And from what I understand it will stay cold for a while.

Now that I look, nearby Pierce College shows temperatures below freezing last night (low 30.6 F). The high was at 7:20 AM – 46.1F.

Looking further, I see a 29.4 Fahrenheit reading at 7:20 AM on the 14th.

This is not typical Southern California weather!!

This won't be good for the tomato plants...

Cold and Windy

Yesterday's haul: Nothing.

Today's haul: Prairie Fire.

Yesterday it rained in the morning but stopped midway through the day. Last night it got colder and very windy. As my wife indicated, we're happy we got up our new fence in time!

Will our remaining tomato plants hold out? We'll see.

It's Pouring Today

Saturday's haul: Nothing.

Sunday's haul: 2 winter tomatoes.

Today's haul: Nothing.

Because my wife and I were busy on Saturday morning, none of the back yard tomatoes got pulled by the gardeners.

Our Manchester Terrier picked off the last tomato on Pierce's Pride and appeared to have picked one off of Black Plum Paste.

It's been pouring today...
