  1. Great idea! You could even get a 'grow lamp' from a garden center which are open now...hooray...
    Boo and other unmentionables to the cold weather. We might get frost again tonight. Sheesh.

    1. thanks!!! My little lantern worked really well, wasn't going to purchase a "grow lamp" for a temporary situation...(I have a few lanterns and actually the tomatoes in particular thrived with them!) I just planted everything outside today, it appears one of my geraniums might have bit the dust but we shall see!

  4. This is why I'm only planting native Michigan plants; they know what our weather is like, and they don't need to be fussed over.
    Plus, I'm the laziest gardener EVER!

    1. I'm sorry but you have me cracking up laughing. I didn't purchase anything that was exotic lol. Most plants don't do well in temps under 40 degrees....BTW, tomatoes ARE in Michigan lol!

    1. Do you have a balcony? I am on 2nd floor too, we have an outdoor balcony and as of today...ALL the plants have been moved outside! YAY! Finally! I am planting the tomatoes tomorrow (because we have severe storms coming later, so I set the plants in a large pot so they won't blow around), I have tomato plants, 4 geranium plants (2 of them are citronella geraniums and 2 are lime scented, that are supposed to repel mosquitoes and other bugs), I have spearmint, and I have hens and chicks plants, and some beautiful Columbine flowering plants. The Columbines will go in my 3 hanging planters. And...I have marigold seeds that I hope to plant tomorrow as well. I hope to get ALL of the plants potted tomorrow! If you have a balcony, GO FOR IT!

  12. Now that's smart! I've brought some into the garage at night. My veggie plants are protected by a water barrier that's supposed to extend their season. We'll see how it does.

    1. yeah my friend used her garage too, unfortunately, I am in a condo/apartment building and our garage is shared with 3 other people and I didn't want my plants to be stolen :)

  13. Same predicament here! Plants are kept in the laundry room and the door's shut. I do get a sniff, but that's about it! - Tom x

    1. lucky you! I didn't even get a sniff cause Mom had them under lock and key and there was no way to climb up to sniff them. Now, they are all outside where they belong!

  14. That is a great solution. I must confess I don't have any plants because I let ALL the plants I ever had die :(

  15. That's a creative solution. I used to have a lot of indoor plants, but not any more. Too much to take care of.
