Not Good

It’s been sunny and nice the last few days. So I’ve had time to size up the estate here.

I’m thinking my olive trees took a beating in the little cold snap we had a few weeks ago.

I covered them with heavy canvas, piled leaves around them, and put a heating pad at their bases.

I think I at least saved the bottom parts. That said I doubt they make it through another snap if we have that.

I’m thinking that if they survive, I’ll dig them up and put them in a pot that I can move in and out of the garage or sunroom.

I think it’s time to give up on plants that need a warmer environment. We’ve gone years with no really cold weather. Last three years we’ve had sub freezing weeks that pummel these plants.

It’s a struggle.
