This sort of thing has been going on for weeks now .. up and down, up and down. Looks like we'll get our first frost on Saturday. I'm ready for it .. everything vulnerable is tucked away in the greenhouse!

We had frost here Saturday morning. Crazy, since the temp never dropped below 40. Glad I had brought in my succulents and citrus that have developing fruit.

Oh no! Nothing was really damaged here; I guess it didn't last long enough.
Now we're gong to be in the 70's/50's for this week. May get rain later in the week.

I dug up all my curcuma gingers this morning - they were desperate for a divide .. so here it is November 21st and I'm sweating! Gotta love it!

Deja vu!

I was remembering that we had warm weather last November and sure enough found this thread from one year ago today!

Suppose to get into the upper 70's tomorrow!

Weather liars say colder and wetter than normal Winter for this year - I would have no complaints if we repeated last years Winter!

Two questions:

Anyone using floating row covers? I'm trying for the first time.

Do you dig up your dahlias and store in the winter? I'm in Winston Salem, NC.
