Gardeners, watch the temps on Sunday night. Meeting on Friday!

Since weather forecasting is not an exact science, temps could drop a few degrees and you might have frost. If you are in a low lying spot, your chances are greatly increased so, check the forecast on Sunday to be sure.

Usually, after the first frost we enjoy a nice "Indian Summer" so I hate to lose my plants the first time around.

Weed'em & Reap will only have a few more meetings before we break for the holiday period between Thanksgiving and New Years soooo.. better get down to see us.

I am looking at the T-G weather on the top of this page and I see 32 degrees last night?! Did anyone have frost?

I know it was cool last night but 32 degrees???

I agree, I reset the page a few times but it kept coming up as 32.

That's OK though, no rush. :-)

I just checked the long range forecast and the low has been upgraded to 40 so maybe we are safe.

I have some large plants that need a good winter home. Would anyone like to pick them up or help me get them to the restaurant for adoption?

I can help you get them to the meeting QC but it might be good to ask who might be able to adopt. That way we do not have to bring them back. What kind are they?

And no, I am not in the adopting market. I probably need to do the same. :-)

By the way, I noticed the temp for Sunday night has been revised lower again and my cell phone says it will be colder than forecast here, so.... better take precautions anyway.

I'm thinking a hibiscus,a hydrangea and a fern that sheds more than a white cat in a room full of black-clad Goths.

All are pretty and generally quiet and well-behaved.

If I can't get them re-homed before frost,I can settle for getting them indoors until the right new plant-parents volunteer.

Yup, my ferns go through times like that also. We'll plug them more for the next meeting or they could stop by after the meeting.

I've got to get closed down and ready to go. See you soon.

That is a good looking fern QC and of course, you know I did what I said I wouldn't. That hibiscus was just too beautiful.
