Weather in Ohio has been rather mild this week. The last few days have been close to 70 degrees, which is somewhat unusual for November. It's offical, we are having Indian summer.
But in order to have an official Indian summer you have to have had a hard frost first (or else it would just be summer I guess). And last week we had a hard frost. It finally did my potato vines in.
Since they are on the front porch I can keep them fairly long into the season, but once a real frost hits them they got all mushy, slimy and ugly.
Really, they are pretty gross to pull out of the flower pots.
But I put my big girl panties on and grabbed them by the necks and pulled them out. And now we're stuck with just cabbage and grass.
Weren't they pretty. I need to move somewhere where you can grow plants year round. Georgia? Florida maybe?
