This is what our back entry currently looks like. We had some tomato plants outside that, for various reasons (late starting, too much rain, not enough sun...) didn't do very well. And with the weather getting colder, we thought we might as well bring them inside and see if the tomatoes will ripen. They're cherry tomatoes, so I guess we'll be eating an awful lot of them if they actually do ripen!
And our little wood pile - as the weather gets colder, we usually bring in about a week's worth of wood at a time and stack it by the back door for easy access. Sure beats going out on a frigid morning to get wood!
So I guess we won't be using our back entry for awhile. But it's for a good cause. :)
