The Farmer’s Almanac was correct again, for this year.

Tomato GreenhouseThe freeze is right on time.  We don’t know how long it plans to stay, but our tomatoes are still green.  We’re going to take a chance, since the days are warm enough to keep them on the plants.

We are going to cover the hoops with the plastic and set a small heater in one end and allow the heat to travel throughout our little Tomato Greenhouse.

Watch the video to see how this works…

In case the freeze sticks around longer, we’ll pick the green tomatoes and bring them in to ripen…
