Sweet Reprieve!

We've had amazing weather the last few days. It has given us a much needed break from the monotony of cold and gray, and also a decent head start on the gardening. I raked the lawn, cleared the flower beds, planted about 84 flowers and 72 veggies (indoors for now), and laid out and started to dig up our future vegetable garden. At one point Ross asked, what if we do all this work and end up having to move? Well, that would suck, but at the moment I consider gardening an act of hope and faith that things are going to work out here. And, if they don't, maybe the improvements to the yard will help sell the house that much faster!

I checked the "last freeze" date for our area and it is May 1-15. That means it could be snowing two months from now, but for today at least I got to feel the warm sidewalk under my bare feet!

You can pull up the map at http://gis.ncdc.noaa.gov/website/ims-climatls/index.html. After you select your area, you need to hit one of the buttons (upper left I think) to pull up the actual dates :)
