  • I wonder if cuttings can be made of the sweet potato vines, rooted and held over for net year? Anyone done this?

    I have two eggplants that are two years old now. I don't know how long thy can keep going, but with the first strong threat of frost for me, I will cut them back, pot them and see how they fair another winter in the greenhouse.

    That greenhouse won't have the benefit of a wood heater this year so it may get cooler than 55 degrees. Hmm, need to work on that issue soon.

  • It is also a good time to start moving a fig tree that has been handed down from my grandfather and arrived in the U.S. back in the early 1900's.

    I made some rootings two years ago and they are doing nicely so it is time to divide the plant and bring them in. I'll replant them this Spring.

    Hmmm, that also mean I have to start re-adjusting the greenhouse to make room for all the outside potted plants. Boy! I can wear myself out without even getting out of the chair!
