End of season pics

bradleyo_gwOctober 6, 2012

The worst time of the year is here. After a beautiful couple of days in the upper 70's, the upcoming forecast includes several days with lows in the low 30s, frost is right around the corner. It is incredibly dreary and cold, only about 50F right now. These pics are especially for Jim K, for scale I've included a coozy of everyone's favorite team as they prepare to beat the snot out of that other team in Pa tomorrow.

Plants that I need to haul in before the first frost.

Im afraid that much like the banana and palm plants in each area, philly's football team will outlast those in Pittsburgh.

Lago, we'll know more by 4pm tomorrow. Must win for the good guys, and the outlaw criminals in green haven't looked very good despite their record, IMHO. Maybe I'm biased....Nah!

Austin - Thanks. It is prudent to include proper scale for all pics. Everyone knows exactly how large a 12 oz bottle is!

Great Pictures! Go Steelers! Washingtonias in the ground, and Windmills and Pindos in the pots haha i guess it's the risk factor?!

Richard, the washies are getting dug up. I haven't decided where I'm putting the trachies and pindo yet. I still don't have all of my beds done. Everything will look quite different next year. This year was just kind of a year to get everything I moved with me in the ground.

Jim, lack of rain has not been an issue here, we have had plenty all summer. I just won't seem to dry up at all. I wish I could send some your way!

Knotz, the coozy is key. I'm not superstitious or anything, but posting pics of the bottle, along with wearing a Steelers T-shirt, Steelers pants, Steelers socks, and Steelers Crocs, it worked today! Oh that's right, the plants all root for the Steelers too. Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go!
