Good idea Juliev. Good morning to all, but I am late, it is nearly 2:30, I have been busy today tearing out my poor dead tomatoe plant and work with the earth to put in my crocus, iris and tulips and garlic and trim back my roses and lavender. Still needs more work.

No unless it is really cold. We get snow here but not like NY. They are planted in an above the ground wooden planter 4x4 feet with wood surrounding it so it is insulated. I trim them back normally and if it is really a long cold coming in I cover with plastic bag or container. The herbs just keep coming back, but I handle them the same way. We had snow last year (I was not here) but it only lasted less than a week.

You are welcome, I hope it works for you. I know you guys get many feets of snow, as we do in all of our mountain ranges, but in Eugene is not like that.

noregeskog, I've realized you are not much of a drinker. I posted a note for you under Beverages and you have not replied.

I'm hurt.

I am so sorry mudbug I will go there now. But I do drink I have wine or beer every night with dinner and occasionally brandy or akaviet after. I am not a tea totler by any means but I also do not wake up and pour anything in my coffee to wake up.
