Weekly Update

For those in the New York City area who are wondering why it was warmer than usual this week, here are two reasons: 1) I put the electric blanket on the bed, and 2) We brought in most of the plants and herbs that we thought were in danger of being harmed by cold weather and the eventual frost. If we had brought in the rest, we would be having a full-on heat wave. I'll work on that over the weekend! Like last winter, I am determined to keep the hibiscus and Mandevilla plants in bloom. The challenge: I bought a ceramic planter that is in the shape of a boat that the Mandevilla is in (see photo above), and that thing is heavy. I am thinking we need a ramp and a dolly to move it. And there are three other big pots that need to come inside. Tom has challenged me next year to plant the big plants in light buckets, but if these wither over according to plan, we will be hauling them around again.
