Frost Alert: Save Those Tenders!
This is my every-two-months, crazy-busy week of getting the magazine layout done, proofed, and off to the printer. So I'm basically working 20-hour days and not seeing the outside world except in spurts as I run to get cat food or bring in the newspaper. But I did surface enough to cut a bunch of coleus cuttings and to pull in some of my more tender plants as the temps hear are dropping to the low 30s at night. Next week I'll have more time to prep plants for a proper winter inside. For now I'm doing what I'd call "plant triage" and praying a real freeze does not hit us quite yet.
