Keep your face to the sun, and you will never see the shadows- Helen Keller

Aster is quite a fan of being outdoors, especially on my parents front porch swing! We were enjoying one of the last days of summer like weather. The weather has been so nice this Autumn! It makes it all the harder now that things have taken a turn towards colder days.
My husband and I are attempting to put up a high tunnel in our garden to lengthen our growing season. Needless to say, we have a steep learning curve (as seems to be the case with any garden type projects we take on!), and the wind has made it hard to keep the thing up. We may have to switch gears and work with cold frames, since they are closer to the ground.;) Our fiasco with the high tunnel may cause us to bump a small green house up the list of things we need on our place... Any tips on how to extend our garden season would be appreciated!
