  1. Oh how things differ in different parts of the country. 🙂 We had to cover the garden to protect from frost two nights this week. We are at 3100 feet in central Oregon and our plants are just getting going. Its a short growing season here and the plants have to get with it or they just don’t produce, but you learn tricks and you adapt and the crops come in. I also keep bees and if you would like to see my bee yard check out my own blog at


  2. I’ve been ready for summer since January 1st.
