Woke up this morning Dec 5th to our first snow fall of winter. Not much accumulation, maybe 1/4 inch in places, certainly a slush on the car to greet me for the morning drive to work. Later turning to sleet, nothing of it remaining after a few hours. But the cold remained. brrrr...
Fortunately the plants had been protected last night, and now the parsley is staying in the kitchen for while. Chilies and sage don't mind it, yet.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
