No Real Winter Yet!


I got my pine needles and have been ready to winterize the ol’ bogs for a few weeks now… but it certainly doesn’t look like winter here yet.  Green grass and mild days!  Here is a quick look at the forecast into mid December…

So far, the weather forecasters have been bang on with regards to the effects of El Nino for my area… above average temperatures and below average precipitation.  Hopefully this trend continues… after the past two record breaking cold winters, a mild winter will be very much appreciated!

    The weather has been great – let’s keep our excitement under wraps as somewhere, sometime when we least expect it – wham, it will raise it’s ugly head. Not the biggest fan of snow as you can see. Enjoy the reprieve.

    Similar weather in Burlington. Put the plants away when it got “cold” a couple of weeks ago. Now I am hoping that everything will survive in the garage (used pink box method).

    Same here down in Poughkeepsie. It’s been 60 the past 2 days and upper 50’s the rest of the time! We need rain though, we’re about 10″ short for the year. My flytraps and sarrs are in the fridge since Late October.

    Hello sir. My name is Travis and I’m in zone 5a, Oshkosh WI. I’m a newbie to your blog and have spent the last couple days reading your whole blog. Totally wish I would have found it before it was a little late for this winter. But am definitely growing outdoors year round next year. Thankyou so much for all this info, its awesome, and inspiring. One quick question for you, how deep is your bogs? Hopefully in the next year or two I could be one of your guest bogs! Thanks again for your time and blog, it is truly awesome.

      Hey Travis… good to have you here! Thanks too for the kind words. As for bog depth… it really depends on how deep you feel like digging. A deeper hole holds more water, hence the bog will require little or no watering at all depending on how much rain you get. My bogs are are 30-40 cms deep (12-15 inches ish). If you do make some bogs, please send some photos… I’ll post them here 🙂
