      I have a hoop frame over my pond. Sun heats water, keeps it warmer in greenhouse at night. My stream bed plants do not even loose their leaves in the winter.
      No Nancy the cost of covering the old greenhouse would be really high and then I would have too cool and heat it and I surely cant afford that.

      Ok I brought the last of the plants that I can bring inside just a few minutes ago. I finally dug the 2 red bananas up and just tossed them in with the other plants. I dug a lot of alocasia and colocasia up and hopefully some of them will last until spring. I did this last year and some did last. some didnt. I was going too leave one small Ae Ae banana out but decided the area was too wet where I had it. So it will go in the living room beside my african violet stands with the 3 very large Alocasia variegata Macrohizia and 2 smaller ones. See if you dont have a other half you can fill yoour house full of what ever the hell you want,lol There is just a small trail on the back porch too get out with the dogs and to get in the hot tub. Well actually at this minute I cant get in the hottub because the steps into it are full of plants too. This is some colocasia Mojito and maui gold that came out of the stream. The Maui gold I cant pick up I am going too leave them out for a while with this wheel barrow on top of them so they can dry out and not freeze. I think they could stay all winter but as soon as they dry out I will try and find a place for them. when they grow in water they really dont make good tubers. well the Mojito does not but some of the others do. There are some of the one that has dark green and lime splashes on it that do make good tubers growing in water they send out runners too. Sorry cant remember its name. ok by the way the all the dogs slept with me last night. they all were really good for a change. right now I am tweaking again my back is still bothering me pretty bad. I got good drugs though.lol/ I got them all dug just a few odds and ends left for the winter too get but that cant be helped the ones that are hard too replace are inside. I think I will take my sedum pots before the winter really set in and put them under my picnic table and put plastic over it and make it into a cold frame that should keep them safe I hope.they would not do well on my back porch even if I did have room for them.

      That was a lot of hard work! The Black Magic & Imperial that is growing in my stream, after the frost hits them , I will cut them down. I will leave them about a foot tall and cover them with about three sheets of 6 mil. plastic. They came back from last winter. They are huge now.
      I see a leaf of your Red Castor Bean plant. Are you bringing it inside too? Mine is about 4 ft tall and I plan to try to keep it alive mainly for the reason to try to get it to bloom next summer. I hope to get some seed from it by it being bigger & older starting out this Spring.
      O am glad you brought the AE AE inside.
      Nancy

      I am so glad got everything inside. We had a pretty good frost last night that took the tops on the hardy bananas and the green colocasia that has take over the south side of the greenhouse

      Yesterday on my Birthday. I got out dads old Troy Bilt roto tiller. He bought it 34 years ago this month for me too till my flower beds at the time and his small garden. I had the engine rebuilt this summer and new tires put on it. It runs like a charm. I am going too try my Ae Ae bananas in the ground this year along with a ton of my alocasia. Not sure if I will put any of the colocasia in the ground or not. I started tilling my old garden spot that is between 2 stands of loblolly pines, there were a lot of roots. I am going too have too cut down the trees in my old rose row and kill them and try too take care of these roses if its not too late. I will mulch them heavily from the chicken coops with wheat straw and poop. I will also put that on the alocasia and bananas and some cannas too, I will run a soaker hose on them for water.,
      They need out of the pots anyway they are root bound and that way come winter I can dig them up shake off the soil and not worry about all those heavy pots. The row I have started tilling is 60 foot or more. Keep you fingers crossed.

      I am happy that my sedums survived the 4 degrees we had in January,. It looks like most of the varieties made it. I just took one pic

      I have started cleaning my pots up and moving some of them down too store them. I have noticed day lilies coming up and also the tall sedums and the tall phlox. I am getting a few cone flowers up too but it looks like I lost most of them and a lot of the phlox. It was such a dry fall and winter. if the pot does not have anything coming up in it it will be moved going to have a serious cutting back this year. We had another storm that messed up the shade cloth again and not sure it can be repaired this time. going too have too get a new leaf basket for one of my pumps as it froze and cracked. and also have too replumb too.

      I noticed the pines are blooming and so are the Bradford pears. I am so ready too get these plants out of the house. They are not doing as well as they normally do. I am ready too spend more time outside. only about 30 days and it will be ok too put everything outside I am so ready. I hope my health holds up.
