Lol, when it gets colder here I agree! For me, this is the bittersweet time of the year. In past years I didn't mind winter at all, but since I am getting older, I dread winter more each year.
I know what you mean, Norma. I grew up in Montreal, and then lived in Toronto before moving to CT 10 years ago. I started to lose my taste for winter when I quit skiing and playing hockey in my early 20's, and my tolerance for winter has gone steadily downhill since then (and that was a looooong time ago). I tell people I moved here for the weather.
But I never owned a snowblower until I moved here.
I was at the community garden today, and I don't know how much more I'm going to get from the tomato plants. The basil is pretty huge, and we'll process that once it gets a little colder. I think I'll use Bill's (I think) method of running it through the food processor with some EVOO and freezing it.
