Sorry about that Sam!  I have had to live with those realities too, in 
reverse- too hot and humid to grow some stuff well- apples and plums have 
been a real challenge, and Ribes are all still illegal in North Carolina, so 
no gooseberries, currants, or jostas for me....  Still, I am very thankful 
for the plants I can grow, and usually I have found something to fill every 
time of year that we can eat!  Best of luck!
