We are getting a little cold weather here. I enjoy the cold. We don't get a lot of cold weather in this part of Texas. It cracks me up to see everybody act like it is 20 below when it is in the 30's. I do have to admit that it feels a lot colder because of the humidity. When the wind blows it cuts into you. We have had visitors here when we had a cold snap and they were surprised at how cold it felt. We are going to be a little cold here for a while. Then it will be typical Texas weather and get back up in the 70's. That is the part I don't like. If it would stay cool and not bounce around it would be so much better.
I had to pick my bell peppers and eggplant from the garden so the frost didn't get them. I have an eggplant plant the is the biggest thing I have ever seen. My daughter put hay around the trunk, yes I said trunk, and covered it with a blanket. I have been getting a lot of the purple goodies from that tree. It is still full of small ones and I hope they make it. It gets compost and water. Nothing else. I try to keep my garden as organic as I can.
