I have to laugh, I was excited to see the temp at 22 at lunch time.  It was
-2 this morning, and all I can say is "what plants"?  I would love to be out
picking lemons tho, I can tell you that, sounds wonderful to me... Have a
good weekend all, maybe I'll get my dirt sterilized and set up my seedling
area.  That would be good.  

(in cold Colorado)

It was 77F at noon and is supposed to be 39F at sunrise tomorrow. A cold
rain is
falling and Miss Sleepy Dawg is on the couch under her favorite afghan, just
peeking out once in awhile to see if anyone has a snack at hand.
