Fall is just around the corner

You can definitely tell fall is just around the corner. We had our first severe temperature drop today. As I write this at 3:30 in the afternoon, it is 63 degrees according to my weather widget. I’m sitting out on my porch enjoying this lovely weather and listening to the squirrel chirp above me in the tree. Perhaps he just discovered me down here and doesn’t like what he sees.
My poor tomatoes finally have some berries, but they are small and still very green. I fear they won’t make it before our first frost. ‘Tis the season to begin watching the temperature more closely. Last night dipped to 48 degrees and it is expected to dip to 44 tonight. I will have to think of some clever ways to keep my tomatoes alive a little longer. It may not me ideal weather for my plants, but it is absolutely perfect for me. Open the windows and let the fresh cool air in!
