This weather is driving the garden nuts, and me with it.

We've had record high temperatures through January and February. The crocus came up with the daffodils and they are both blooming. The bigger apricot tree started blooming last weekend. The smaller one started blooming yesterday. The camellia is covered in heavy buds and a few open flowers. And we are expecting a low of NINETEEN DEGREES tomorrow night.


I received my bare-root artichokes back in February. I planted two out in the raised beds and four went into pots and into the Great Room. (One of the indoor plants is leafing out already!) So I do have insurance against late frosts. But I still put in a call to the Peaceful Organic folks to find out if there is anything I can do to preserve the two out in the beds.
