Well, its getting pretty cold here now.  Down to about 23 F last night.  
Yesterday I did bring in my peppers and pelargoniums.  I now have 20 peppers 
and 5 pelargoniums crowded under my grow lights.  The rest of my scented 
geraniums are scattered about in the various windows.  Some I may cut back 
and store in my cool room but many are still blooming!

I left the tomatoes out under my lean-to against the house and covered with 
blankets over the reemay and plastic and I also added a 60 watt light to add 
extra heat last night.  There aren't many tomatoes but I'ld like them to ripen.
