Saturday stayed cold and rainy most of the day, and early reports called for a freeze at night. I decided to bite the bullet and harvest the rest of the green tomatoes, the cucumbers, the peppers.
I got thoroughly soaked despite wearing rainpants and a raincoat, but I was well bundled up underneath, so it wasn't too bad. Every time I thought I'd gotten the last of the tomatoes, I'd look again and find one or two more.
I made fried green tomatoes for dinner and made two big jars of green tomato pickles. I still have a ton to process. There's basil outside and I need to make pesto, but my get-up-and-go has gone for the day.
I'm going to bed with crossed fingers.
