    Added my grow list in today - link in signature.

    MWR at Fort Drum does couples retreats to Lake Placid every fall, we were thinking about going this year, since I haven't been to that area yet - that's pretty close to Saranac lake isn't it?

    Hey there! I live over here in Albion, between Jimscott and Scottychaos.

    I grow some of my CPs outside year-round, but my winters reach only -10 and I use a foot of leaves as mulch. It works pretty well though, and I only loose shallow rooted plants like D.intermedia (the freezing pushes em right out of the ground)

    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Very cool Exo! I've seen it hit -21F or less up here, usually around my birthday (end of January). I think our record was -39F, but that was around 1930. Still, I have a friend in southern Alaska that has better winter temps! It was so cold that my husband was out doing training around that time and they couldn't even let them stay in the tents with the heating, they had to bring everyone in - which they don't usually do here.

    Speaking of, I've been up for an hour and it's up to 54F now, when I got up, I put on sweats and debated turning the heater on. We were part of that huge storm system yesterday so all of the CP's were brought in the night before due to the wind. I'm glad I did, it looked like Wizard of Oz out there - took my BBQ grill out and a few lawn chairs. I was afraid to leave them out because the wind has taken my glass topped patio table and dumped it (shattered) so didn't want them getting that kind of abuse. They seemed happy enough sitting under my grow lights yesterday and last night. Back outside right now though.

    Jim, love your grow list! I have a S. Leucophylla "Tarnok" coming and a S. Love Bug just yet, both are large and flowering size. You have a nice Drosera collection I see too!
    Also, the P "John Rizzi" very nice! All of you NY'ers have awesome collections!

    My neighbor cracks me up, she sent me a text at the crack of dawn saying "I stole some of your flowers this morning for my husbands birthday breakfast, I hope you won't mind" and sent me a picture XD I have a huge bush of Marigolds she pilfered this morning, I don't mind a bit, but made me feel accomplished my neighbor is ganking my flowers, hehe.
