I usually manage to hold out until at least mid to late October. This is the earliest I have plugged in the heater, just couldn’t deal with the frigid hands and feet one more day.
And we had all the doors and windows open just a few weeks ago….:-(
Love you summer. XOXOXOOctober 2, 2013 at 1:23 am #798198
It went from summer to November overnight this year. Missing the warm September we had last year!October 2, 2013 at 1:58 am #798199
We beat you! Have had our furnace turned on for the past week or more :)October 2, 2013 at 2:40 am #798200
Feel your pain. I broke down and put heat on for a few hours today, but it is off for the night and hopefully a few more weeks! I am NOT ready for the cooler weather, but hubby is doing a happy dance over snow in Cascades…..October 2, 2013 at 2:02 pm #798201
praying for a few more days of sunshine so my remaining tomatoes can ripen…October 2, 2013 at 2:34 pm #798202October 2, 2013 at 4:27 pm #798203
I turned on the gas fireplace on Friday; the pilot mechanism died the next day and service can’t come until mid next week.
So I pulled out the electric radiator and plugged that in. The outlet started buzzing which was a first (love that 70 year old wiring). Plugged it in elsewhere. Then I placed a call to a highly-recommended (here) electrician to inspect the scary outlet who has not called back. Time to call someone else. It must be autumn!October 2, 2013 at 5:16 pm #798204
does anyone know what i did with the remote to the space heater next to my computer…
i noticed it wasn’t where i though it should be this summer.. but it seemed so unimportant then ;)October 2, 2013 at 7:11 pm #798205October 3, 2013 at 1:22 pm #798206
please let the sun come out today
if it doesn’t i will be forced to ripen them on the windowsill..
except i don’t have a south facing windowsill
so i will be forced to clean my kitchen table off :(October 3, 2013 at 11:28 pm #798207
Definitely chilling off at night, now. Hope you aren’t forced to clean off the kitchen table.. :) Made me laugh because I have one of those, too.October 4, 2013 at 12:09 am #798208
i used the space heater in the office today
but i am not ready to clean off the kitchen table
not even for tomatoesOctober 5, 2013 at 6:11 pm #798209
JoB I read on a Tilth pamphlet that was linked from our website that said to just go ahead and pull the green tomatoes and let them ripen in a non-sunny spot. Otherwise the tomatoes will get mealy like the grocery store tomatoes. Also I think your plants can be damaged by the cold nights anyway. Planning on pulling my plants today. Good luck!October 6, 2013 at 1:20 am #798210
in the past i have pulled them and hung them upside down on a sheltered porch… or on the curtain rod just inside an unheated room…
i have already cleaned off the back half of the kitchen table.. but will leave stems attached.
i am risking waiting till tomorrow…
most of them will go into sauce anyway..
