Just in case you’ve forgotten – last fall was hotter and drier than (you fill in the blank…). But since the OPPS was in mid-October, I felt confident that fall rains and cooler temperatures would provide the “perfect” conditions for my new gingers to become established before winter set in. After all, fall is for planting – right? Oops. The rains never showed up and despite frequent irrigation, most of my brand new gingers bit the dust. I was VERY disappointed and down-right POed about the situation.
