Yep that looks like the plant you have. It goes in the house in Winter right? Must like it when you get it outside to get growing better.

Here’s the latest project, my gf found me a elec Wire spool, I’ve been wanting a clock for over the fireplace. I started laying it out, I want it smaller, so I’ll spin a router on it like a compass to cut it to a smaller diameter. Here it is so far. I’m leaning toreards the one I saw online that was half whitewashed.

@Burd you inspired me to try some artsy fartsy stuff on my wood shed wall. Maybe birds or bats will use these or not as that's ok too. Just did it for some decor for the blank wall.

Very nice! The birds will use if they are like the ones here. People hand bird houses on sheds all of the time and they populate them well.

@addy1 well that would be very cool if they do. Do they clean them out when they leave or come back if there is old nest junk in them? Just wondering cuz I don't plan on cleaning them out. Not going to be a landlord,lol!

Most of my bird houses I leave the nesting material in them. The birds reuse those houses, the few I have cleaned they don't use again. By clean I mean pull nesting material out.

I finally wrapped up the siding on my patio. Just need a new door wall slider and a back door. What a loan, everything had to come apart and had to move it all, speakers too. But it’s nice now. I can’t find the pic I took, I’ll get one tomorrow. Added a new red BBQ, all red accents now. Lol.

It just snowed here. I may have posted this before, but I can’t wait till spring. The potato plant has been in my garage all winter, it’s not doing well, do these plant die back in the winter? Here it is all happy on my baker rack.

Yes, mine die back. I have some on our back deck in a pot with some taro plants, that I bring in side for the winter. The potato vine dies back then comes back again once I move the pot back outside the following spring.

It did come back, both, the rack was really getting rusty looking, I took it to the shop to evaluate sanding/ wire wheeling or take it to a sand blast place.

@GBBUDD Yep, Water it like a house plant. I usually let frost hit them once that slows them down, then bring them in and keep the, by a window.
