The cold... it hurts

I hope my lime tree will be ok.
I want it near the window, but the windows are a bit leaky and I don't want it to die from cold. Citrus trees do, you know.

I am not about to set off a smudge pot in my livingroom, however.

I'm thinking about maybe bringing it upstairs for a few days until Canada gets my letter about their excessive gift. It's a few degrees warmer up here than down in the front - and might do well for the poor lil' thing.

5 days

    what's a smudge pot?

    I love cactii but they always shuffle off on me.

    A smudge pot is a fuel oil fired burner used to keep citrus fields warm in case of low temperatures - as in the Florida orange crops.

    Yes, they heat the outdoors...
