  1. Traditionally our first hard-frost day, here in the Appalanchain Mountians in eastern West Virginia, has been October 20th, and our frost-free day May 15th. The past decade has been erratic, as all of our weather appears to be, with cold coming early/late and ending early/late. As of yesterday it was 50F on New Year’s Day, and we are harvesting all of our salad greens from our greenhouse (cold house, not hot house) and cold frames. We pulled onions and leaks from under row-cover. Is this the New Normal? – Oscar

    • There is a guy at the university of New Mexico that said based on available weather data for the past 1,000 years, our weather is returning to a normal pattern. He continued by stating the we have had some 70 to 50 years of unusually stable weather starting at the end of the dust bowl years.

      Happy 2019 Gardening

  2. Oh to be zone 9 or 10. I am a zone 3b in Wainwright, AB Canada. That’s not the only problem, we have clay soil that grows very little in the way of anything without some serious input.
