Yup, officially I bet this is the shortest growing season we ever had. We got a late frost on July 5th and an early frost August 20th.

Definately making me want a greenhouse more and more.

Awww... Tamara I sure hope that frost guy doesn't visit us soon now as well. We usually get our first frost end of Aug. I'd love to have these next two weeks yet.
But it sure is cold the last few days and temperatures going down to 5 degrees C.

Tammy I felt for you all summer long. It made the snow in May and Hail in June look like nothing. Just one of those weird weather things I guess. But all that rain would've driven me insane. And now this. Need help building that greenhouse? I've always wanted to visit NB. ;) grin I'll hopefully be moving soon to Ontario. Talking to a realtor tonight since we didn't get any real bites thru WeList. I was holding off because if it did sell fast I would have to leave my garden behind and we had not asked for transfers yet so no point in leaving until we have a job. I have mainly tomatoes but haven't had one ripe one yet from it and I at least would like to enjoy a few. I now have the chance to do that since they are growing like crazy and a few more weeks before the first frost, I say this as I hope we don't get an early one as well. The good thing is I know you won't let this bring you down. luv and you'll be back at it next season.

That would be cool, but unfortunately not. I just looked and saw where Georgian Bay is. A bit away from where we are moving to. But you never know. Penny is that considered cottage country? Jeff & I are looking into buying a cottage in the next few years.
