RE: soil types and pH/also question

Yes, the unwatered yard does indeed bake in this outdoor summer kiln. I
think it's interesting to hear about the wide range of growing
conditions everyone has to work with. Y'all have to worry about stuff
being hardy, while we have to keep our fingers crossed and hope
everything can handle the heat. BTW - was talking to the folks last
weekend and they are noticing hummers and other birds starting to
migrate early and the chipmunks seem to be going into pre-winter mode
already. I told him to keep an eye on those animals - they may be
telling you that a big bad winter is fixin' to set in. Anyone else in
the Northeast been noticing stuff like this? Oh and mother wanted to
know if she could over winter her miniature roses (in pots on the deck
so the deer don't eat them) in their unheated (but above freezing)
basement for the winter. I told her that sounded fine to me. But thought
I'd check w/ you more Northern gardeners to see what you do. Mine stay
out 12/365 here, but it rarely gets below 10 degrees here. We don't do
sub-zero thank God. How y'all stand that business is beyond me...
