I didn't have a temperature below 33F from last spring on March 8th till the morning of November 18th last week . That's 254 frost/freeze free days in a row or 8 months and 9 days . That's the longest I ever remember here .
A few pictures on November 17th , the day before the first frost/freeze :
The tropical storm didn't damage this very much , unlike my Ensete maurelii and the Mekong Giants .
One Canna flower left :
Hottest pepper I've ever grown . I put it in the house to dry :
Cocktail tomatoes :
Ensete maurelii ; storm beaten but not frozen :
How did y'all fair this growing season ?
