Duh..we have another refrigerator. It's outside, under the barn overhang.
We only plug it in for the annual BBQ and I just never thought about using
it. Yeah! Forced tulips, irises, crocuses. Endless seeds, planted and dry,
Be still my heart! Thanks, Barb! Can't believe it never entered my mind.
Well, yes I can, too. Cheryl

It had been in the 70's and 80's around here for nearly a week and I'm
afraid to think what's going to happen to everything in the next six weeks,
lest by some miracle there is no frost. My pulmonaria are in bloom, the
scilla, chinodoxa, and crocuses are in full bloom. First daffs today, the
forsythia is in full bloom - fully 6 weeks early for us.
