You can take the GRITS out of Florida, but you can't take Florida out of the GRITS!

Cold Snap!

When I woke up this morning, it was 53 degrees! I'm loving having the airconditioner turned off and the windows open (when it warms up in the afternoon). I know it won't last but a few days, but it is just so damn nice!

I checked on my garden this morning...looks like I'll be getting some okra. I don't like it, but I'm hoping Harley will. I think alot of what I grow, I grow for her!


The Bell Peppers will NOT become tortoise food, though!


When I planted the peppers and tomatoes, I mixed my compost in some fresh dirt and I guess there were a few cantalope seeds in it...

Maybe they'll do better in cooler weather? The last ones never got any bigger than my fist and though they smelled great, they were a little bitter. Guess time will tell.

I had to scrape the ice off my JEEP windshield this morn.

We're loving the cool weather and it looks like your veggies are too.

ICE, FC???? OMG! You sure you really live in Florida?

Dani, don't you wish it would last longer?!

I's be just a bit happier if there was heat in my cottage...Mornings like this I turn the gas oven on high to heat the place...And it makes taking the dog out a whole lot less fun...But once the sun is up it's wonderful...These are the days we mean when we talk about doing a hike when the weather cools off...It seems a shame to waste this day on something dumb (like work)

WooHoo!! It's gotten a little colder up here too. 60s in the daytime and 40s at night. Perfect!
I love hot weather but it's just not Fall and the holidays without a little cool weather.

Your veggies look great. Buddy the Beagle destroyed every plant I had growing in the yard so nothing fresh from the garden for us this year LOL
