    For Pete's Sake I am tired of cold weather!

    Bitter cold expected tonight (killing frost) so I had to rush and cover over a bunch of veggies in the garden and haul house plants and tender veggie plants inside.

    I want spring and summer to really be here!

    I know and i just planted my garden yesterday(i know its kinda late but i did the same thing last year and every thing worked out. I love the winter (i am a ski racer) but in May 30 degrees is way to cold. I put some tarps over the garden so i am hoping every thing will be ok. This is only my second year planting a garden

    Same thing here too. We had to put a tarp over our garden and bring some flowers and potted plants into the garage.

    We've had frosts here in southern New England even as late as May 30. That happened a few years back.

    That's why I never plant my warm weather crops until June 1, even here. I learned my lesson![​IMG]

    Yeah, NPR carried on all weekend with programs about ice sheets melting in Antarctica and the ocean rising 20 feet when 'it' happens. [​IMG]
