Garden Update - Everything Survived


Front Yard above.  Our first Snow on Sept 8-9th.   Early for a hard Freeze, but everything survived.  Even the Zuchinni which we forgot to cover (below).

Back yard Snow.  The Eggplants were wrapped and in front of the planter, and below, unwrapped>

The plants in the snow pics wrapped in blue were my two largest heirloom tomatoes, which were fine also.  The Sioux Tomato above.

Below the Paul Robeson Tomato, which were found out was originally a Russian Tomato.

So my garden continues for at least another month.

 I thought it appropriate to share FDR's real quote from his first Inaugural Speech:

"So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is...fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. And I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days."

We need to avoid the "Terror that Paralyzes".........

For 9/11 let's give FDR's full quote some thpought.
