Cold. Extended Cold.

It seems odd we’re faced with so many early mornings under 40 degrees before we’ve hit mid-November. We have the first frost advisory of the season extending to the weekend.

I can’t recall having 7 mornings in a row at 38 degrees or lower this early in November.

Many things are still very wet from the downpours of the past six or seven days. If you have container plants with saucers, drain the saucers as soon as convenient. I can’t think of any container plants that’ll require saucers between now and April.

I’m moving potted orchids, container fruit trees, and non-hardy bromeliads closer to the house, and have dusted off the frostcloth.

Those early-September days of 110 degrees seem very far away.
