Green Thumb

  Saturday and Sunday were frosty mornings here in Quakertown PA.  Unfortunately, there have been a few casualties of the frost.  My brother lost his tomato plants.  My bell pepper leaves are a little wounded, although they seemed to have survived the cold blast.  But the frost is ending and we can plant without fear!  When the sun finally warmed everything up on Sunday, … Continue reading
