My neighbors might have thought I was trying some odd early Halloween decorations but I was trying to keep my tomatoes protected. Despite the cold weather we are headed back into the 70s this week and I am hoping to get my tomatoes through a few more weeks before I have to pull them.
I picked all the tomatoes off that were showing some color and left the green ones to fend for themselves. I was able to cover five of the eight tomatoes and one eggplant. It looks a bit ghetto especially since the only thing I had to clip the row cover around the plants was my chip and food storage clips. But it worked and we are now back in the safe zone for a bit longer.
