    We did too, and I forgot to cover my one and only strawberry plant [​IMG] So it's probably a goner...

    Yeah, I had to dig up the sweet potatoes. Dang they just needed another week or too. They're too small [​IMG] Well- at least they won't be woody [​IMG]

    Do you know that it was COLDER where you live yesterday morning than where I live yesterday morning? I know that the deep south kinda shuts down when you get an inch of snow--no snow moving equipment, I think. We just stock up and look forward to a few days at home when we get a blizzard! [​IMG] We're seeing A LOT of trees with their leaves gone---wasn't happening for the last few VERY WARM years. Our average frost was supposed to be Oct. 19th--had it on t he 12th, instead. We just had a week of typical winter weather last week--highs in the 40's. Looks like we'll be killing lots of flies this winter with extreme cold---glad I have all of my hay in the loft!!​
