My plants have been in the garage since last night. Anything outside will have to sink or swim.


RE: Frost Warning !!!

I sure hope you are wrong, I have so many plants outsdie it would take a night to get them inside. I checked my weather and it said 45 for tonight.

RE: Frost Warning !!!

Its say 39 degrees here tonight. I will zip up my greenhouse and like Penny said ...everything else is on thier own!...Wayne

RE: Frost Warning !!!

Luckily I haven't planted anything that I sowed indoors yet. My winter sown babies are in the ground but they're used to the cooler weather. Covered up my morning glories that had sprouted so I didn't lose them. Hopefully we'll be in the clear after tonight.

I hear 80s for the weekend.
