I'm sorry to hear about all the damage from this last cold snap. Here in
PA, things weren't warm enough yet to be out far enough to be damaged. My
asparagus isn't even thinking about coming up. There are no blossoms on any
trees yet. Even the forsythia is only just thinking about blooming. I
won't be setting out tomatoes and peppers or planting seeds until about the
first of May or maybe a tad later. Snow on Easter is not that unusual.
I've always envied all you people who can get an early jump over me on the
gardening. Well, not this year.
