I envy you, Vince. We will be back to that soon enough here in Texas but I don't like cold weather. If you can't wear flip flops it is too cold.

That said, we continue to need more chill hours here for the apple and peach trees. There is a need for cooler temps and I love to garden without so many weeds and pests but I certainly enjoy the warmer weather.

P. S. I don't even live where it gets cold ;)

  The nights have been in the mid to upper 20s and 50 or below for a few days.  Real wet or perfectly clear blue skies.  One of those either or Januarys it seems.  We need the cold this year though.  The fruit trees could use about 600 - 800 hours below 45o to make a good winter chill.   ;)

I've only had 227 chill hours below 45 degrees so far with only about 6 more weeks to make up the shortfall.  I'm concerned mostly for my peaches and plums.  They need a range of 250 to 600 so at least I should get something.

This a good site for figuring your chill hours.

Nice site.  I'm only 175 hours.  Thanks, now I'm starting to worry about my blueberries getting enough hours.  I have Climax, Premier, and unknown (450 to 500 chill hours).  My other fruit trees are to young to worry about getting fruit.

A friend of mine lives in Manassa, Colorado. He sent me a text a few minutes ago and said it was -28 this morning. The valley he lives in gets extremely cold. I try and go visit him every year but it will have to wait until the fall ::)

Today it was around 68 and sunny!  Planted corn and tomatoes today.  I'm hoping that the thunderstorms rolling through this weekend won't mess things up!

I am a firm believer in, That I was born into the Cajun French Culture by a supreme being instead of {just getting lucky}

BUT I do believe that if I would ever go down under where you are at OR more north I would stake my claim somewhere and grow some good roots. ~!~~!~!
