The freeze has definitely nipped on the tomatoes in the greenhouse, but amazingly they have not gotten wet enough to get black spot or split. Garden Girl helped pick figs and tomatoes in one greenhouse and green peppers which she ate one half of and some strawberries in another greenhouse. Just to show she was a true lover of the garden, she took a bite of a dirt clot. I am not sure why and tried not to react in case that was what it was all about. I have heard of those children that eat random things, but this was the first instance I have seen with this two year old. I think she got over it when I didn't cry out in horror, but just calmly asked if she wanted a a drink of water with her dirt.
