LMBO @ what I wrote a month ago about "all in 1 day." I've spent about 5 hours on 3 diff days cutting off Coleus stems and trimming extra leaves, bringing them inside. Ended up with about 200 stems, doubled, tripled (and more in some) in bottles of water. I also stuck about 30-40 of them in pots that had "head room." It's insane in here! Bottles everywhere, all over kitchen table. 3 windows still have A/C's in them, so once I can spread out to those windows too, and take some to Mom's house, (and maybe to where I work) it will be a little less crazy.
There's a table by this window full of jars & bottles too, but hey, 2 fit up here until we decide we for sure won't get warm enough to need the fan for a while.
With all of the trimmed-off leaves on the ground, and woody stumps with a few scraggly stems not worth keeping, it looks like some insane Coleus-hater had a complete episode here. Ready for frost now here, possibly Friday night, definitely Saturday night!
For those who had to get started much earlier, how's it going?
