  • More crap weather

    Hopefully this is the last big storm of the year for us. At least that is what the forecast says now. We have had about 4 inches of snow overnight and a few more inches are predicted this AM. Tonight a record low predicted for this date of -1 degree F.

    On the bright side, here is a photo of some of my happy fig cuttings sitting in my window at work laughing at the snow outside.

    Dang Ed. We are in to our major temps swing time of the year. Yesterday we got to 78 degrees. Our high for today wash reached at
    midnight of of 65 degrees and falling into the 30's today. Tomorrows high in the upper 30's. I started shuffling a few trees day before
    yesterday so the season is here. Should be in the 60's by the weekend.

      We got 12" of snow overnight in Dallas, TX and temps dipped to 21F. Unusual for my area at this time of year. Mind you we had temps hitting 80sF in January and the best part of February

        We have a 10 day forecast of high 60s, low 70s... and no rain.

        I've been up-potting figs the last few days. They are breaking dormancy, but most are not yet in full leaf.

          -4F forecast for tonight, but temps are starting to rise above freezing during the daytime. Maple sugaring season is here!

            Here is a view of my backyard a couple minutes ago showing in-ground figs protected in various ways. I'm so anxious to unwrap them and get them growing...if they are still alive, of course. The ones I'm most concerned about are the three against the back fence (MvsB, Malta Black, and Sicilian Red). With those I just have mulch piled about 12 inches up the trunk - the rest is exposed.

              Yes, Jesse. Temps are starting to rise during the day. I'm hoping for a long slow melt so we don't get flooded. Supposed to be in the 40's on Sunday and most of next week. Time to repot and move figs to GH where it will be in the 60-70s next week

                  Miserable and snowy here in NYC. My greenhouse is toasty, but my back is about done with shoveling snow.

                    The adage I followed last night:

                    When life hands you cold weather, buy a case of pork butts and quick freeze them on the deck.

                      Bad as the snow seems at least it is providing insulation for those negative temp nights.
