Good morning gardeners. Thanks for the reminder @Offshoreorca. I have tulip bulbs to plant. I cleaned up another garden bed this morning. I'm moving a bit slow today. I guess all the scrubbing on the siding is starting to wear on my old muscles a bit. I found two good looking basil plants when cleaning out that bed this morning. I potted them up and watered well and will bring them inside later today. The temperatures will be starting to drop this afternoon. Frost isn't expected until Sunday or Monday morning. I heard folks west of the Mississippi will be getting some heavy rains soon. I sure hope there is not any flooding. Regarding the sweet potato planting @WthrLady, I'm thinking since they have such a long growing season is it best to start them inside early them put under a plastic hoop bed outside to give it the warm growing "climate" it needs? Any advice on growing them in zone 5B would be helpful. I still have the siding on the back side of the house to clean but I'm taking a break from that this afternoon and going to the grocery store. I'm sure there will be an opportunity to finish the siding (and rack up some more upper body exercise) next week. The leaves are taking their time falling so no serious leaf clean up yet.
