Well, on Saturday, December 5th, DC had its first big snowstorm of the year. It snowed allll day, but it was mixed with rain and was quite heavy and gloppy and didn’t seem to stick – except in our back garden/deck where there was no sun to melt it away. Now our back deck is coated in 1/8" thick ice and extremely hazardous! The plants seem to be ok though – the storm was the final straw for the one remaining cayenne plant on the back deck, which magically continued creating – and ripening – red cayenne peppers right up until this weekend, but the leaves are now brown and shriveled.
