After a weekend in NYC at a Provincial Council meeting wrapped in Broadway, I am expecting the annual science of death. Friday night was a killing frost in Mendon. The garden will look like the Addams Family visited Tim Burton.
It was only one night and the week promises to be warm enough to work comfortably. The dahlia tubers will be dug and put up in bags that allow for air circulation. Jim is bringing onion bags and I have saved some mesh bulb bags. I will also buy some knee-high "nylons" as these work well. The bags will be hung in a cool dry place. Because my house does not have an optimal location I'll be lucky if half of them make it till spring.
