Dad gum cold temps

Last nights cool temps(46) made some of my coleus sulk. The only Colocasia I have planted out did fine. I'm a little worried about the cooler temps tonight though. Their saying 42 tonight. I think everything except the couple coleus will be ok. So glad I've been holding back on planting the rest of my coleus and elephant ears. I'm thinking I should bring my peppers inside tonight along with the coleus and EEs I have in pots and maybe cover the EE outside. I think everything is going in the ground next week. Temps look good after Monday. How did your plants take last nights temps?

My plants are fine. I'm having doubts about getting many 'maters this year though.

My aunt from Florida called today and asked if it was hot up here too, lol.

RE: Dad gum cold temps

I brought in 3 flats of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. I thought 40 wouldn't do them any good at all.

I heard the 'frost' word last night when the weather report was on. Gads! I sure hope not for anyone.

RE: Dad gum cold temps

We are very lucky it didn't get even colder. I saw several posts in other forums this week about the cold front and late frost. I didn't cover anything but maybe I should have.

This is our "Blackberry winter" Happens every year, about, at this time. Remember I said earlier that we wouldnt be safe until May 10-12? However, I believe we've made it this year. Sure hope so, cause I cant move anything.

Temps look good on the 10 day now but looks like showers and thunderstorms for the next 8 days. Ouch!
