    Has anyone had a freeze yet?

    It was pretty cool this evening and dh and I were wondering if it might freeze tonight, or at least come close. Anyone else just about there yet?

    We have actually had lows in the upper 30's here this week, but no freeze yet. My elephant ears are still humongous and flowering, and they will be flat on the ground at the first freeze. I will be sad to see them go. My canna lily has a new bloom too! Silly plants.

    We had a very light freeze, just enough to bite the tops of our flowers.
    Nothing like mushy impatiens.....

    The advantage of liveing where we do are the 4 distinct seasons. You would think that New Mexico would be hot a dry. Well, it is dry, but at this elevation we have snow in the winter. Unfortunately, lots of mud too. The soil here is mostly clay and does not drain hardly at all. I think to have our garden be successful we will have to "make" our own soil. Raised beds will be to our advantage in this process.

    This time next year I expect to have jars of salsa from our very own New Mexican garden! We need to get down to Hatch to get the best chilis, though. Unless someone else is heading south and could get some for us . . .

    I live down south, in Cruces... what do you need chile-wise? The seeds used for Hatch chiles actually come from NMSU here in town, literally 2 miles from my house. Most of the fresh is gone for the season (wasn't really a good growing season this year) but I can easily get dried for you or rustle up some seeds to send. Just let me know

    Lisa,
    I'll be talking to you early spring about some chili seeds. It is kind of hard to think about gardening right now. I think it is like 19 degrees outside right now. I could use another layer of blubber.

    I would love to try some "Hatch" chilis next year! LMK!
