About another hour and it will be warm enough to go outside and play for a little bit. So much to do. Still have alot of plants I need to check and see if they are still a live or not.

Plus, I see where we are now not only getting more arctic cold this week, but another system is following right behind it for the following week.

Another round of 15-20F at night temps. Poor plants, if they did survive the first round of bitter cold, wonder how much more they can take.

You Northener's , I wonder if you are ever going to get out of the snow and cold. When does spring and actual planting start for most of you. For me it usually is mid march when things are going into the ground, with frost chances usually til mid April, but after having freezing frost and temps at the end of April that wiped out not only a large portion of my seedlings, but other folks too. I am having a hard time trying to figure out exactly when I plan on starting to plant.

Nothing worse than seeing nice patches of green sprouts all over and than cold snap and your left with dead leaves and the job of clean up and hoping you have enough seed left to replant that is if you still have time to before drought and heat sets in.
