We have a low of 36 predicted for tonight and 30 for tomorrow. Brrrrrrr. I hate the cold, but I love my plants. I braved crossing the frozen Tundra to save my babies!!!
Who wouldn’t leave the comfort of their toasty abode and be exposed to blowing winds (winds conveniently blowing your neighbors’ leaves into your yard for your compost pile) if they knew they could insure the safety of a plant like this for next year?
These are the cannas I started in McDonalds cups earlier this year. They didn’t grow as tall as last year, probably because I stunted their growth by keeping them in the cups too long, but the blooms were still good this year.
I dug up and repotted the rosemary plant too. I didn’t check to see whether it was a perennial or not, but I like the way it smells and use it in cooking, so I decided to keep it inside. It’s in the third pot from the right. After I planted it in the ground it shot up pretty fast.
The wind was blowing really hard. Just as I snapped the picture a big gust came up, that’s why the plant is blurry. No more juice in the batteries, so no chance to retake.
Here are the cantaloupes I found growing on the fence earlier. They didn’t get a chance to mature. Now they’re compost cantaloupes.
To all you folks continuing your fall gardens, my hat goes off to you.
