It’s Prayer Night Tuesdays, 7-8 p.m. at the Crabtree Foursquare Church. Then on Friday, 5:30-7:30 p.m. it’s The Senior Night Potluck in the old Foursquare sanctuary kitchen. The theme this month is “birthdays”.

It was 38 degrees on my front porch last week, a neighbor said 37 at his place. Winter is coming. Contrary to my neighbor’s “feeling” about bad weather, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center says in our part of the country it’s going to warmer than usual with average precipitation. We’ll see.

My friend and fellow organic gardener Lalla Ostergren suggests we get ready with a plan before the first frost happens. Where will the potted plants go? Which crops should I cover? Are my plant covers easy to get and ready to go? She says s good plan saves time and plants when that first freeze suddenly appears.
