Through The Lens Thursday #42. Plant.

Through the Lens Thursday. Plant

 

Plants plants plants, they are hanging onto the warm afternoons.  Tomatoes are ripening, chilis are getting fat alongside the aubergines, all for harvest before the first frost.  Nights and mornings are in the 40’s and by mid afternoon we are in the mid 80’s and the poor plants don’t know what to think.  It is ‘boots in the morning’ and ‘flip flops by the afternoon’ kinda weather!

This little barrel cactus lives on my kitchen windowsill, he is an indoor cactus whereas the rest live outside in the summer, and they all squeeze into an inside spot like a shelf or a clearing at the table for the winter. As the nights are getting colder, the plants are starting to jostle for space inside as I bring them in gradually. As usual, they are all a little bigger than last winter!

Next week’s Through the Lens Thursday prompt is ‘Spicy’.

  1. My plants are experiencing the same extremes Clare – freezing almost at night now and in the morning, with deep mists/fog hanging around until lunchtime, then lovely, sunny, bright hot afternoons. It’s crazy and I’m just waiting to harvest all my tomatoes and wind things down for winter…

    • We have warmer temps again this week, so I am hoping everything will hurry up and ripen before a solid frost kicks in! Foggy mornings sound cool.
