The annual migration of houseplants from the back steps to indoors is well underway. The last produce is being picked and tender bulbs are drying outside in preparation for winter storage. And perennials and a few spring flowering bulbs are being planted.

No rush, all in good time.

Until reading the weekend weather forecast. Although the average first frost is November 15th for DC, average means just that – some years the frost will come earlier, or later. This year it looks to be sooner.

So it’s been a big push to get everything indoors that needs to be protected in case we do get the 4 – 6″ of snow predicted for Saturday.
