The weather forecast this week has "the f word." Frost!!!
Since we are past our average frost date, I'm not really surprised. In anticipation of frost, I have moved all the remaining container plants together along the edge of the patio where they will get some protection if it's not a hard frost. They look really good. I hope to hang on to them for a little while longer. I have already moved in all the plants I wanted to overwinter.
I also took some cuttings of the sweet potato vine, bacopa, vinca and Jacob's coat.
I harvested the remaining peppers too, and chopped them before putting them in the freezer.
It was a long, hard growing season with the extreme heat and drought. Autumn has been mild and given us some rain. I'm not ready to go to winter, but the change of seasons has been welcome.
