When That Frost Hits

We had our first frost of fall a few nights ago. The elephant ears (orejas de elefante) were obviously not going to make it. Most people dig up their bulbs, store them in a dry box, and replant them in the spring.

I’m lazy about bulbs, so I cover them with leaves and hope to see their return in the spring. Last year my method worked. I was given a bunch more bulbs this year by my neighbor, who had stored them. They grew great and are now covered with leaves along with my original set.

Poor things. Lol. They’ll be back though, I feel certain.
