Default Re: When you digging up?

yep, same here. We got the large ice cream into the greenhouse because we get extremely high winds here in the fall. Sure enough, the day we put it in we thought it was windy, 40 mph winds, but the next day they were 50 mph gusts.
I've been slowly getting things into the greenhouse a little early this year because of 40ish degree night temps--and because we haven't had any rain to speak of in 6 wks. It's easier to water in the greenhouse.
I'll be digging my large alocasia in the next few days just so I can get it done and out of the way. Then all the bananas around the pond go in when I hear there's a frost forecast. Usually the 7-10th of October, which is coming up fast. I can dig them up real quick--they pop right out, then when my hubby gets home from work, we can get them carried and put away in about an hour or less, working as a team.
