I feel very fortunate not to have had the winter that most of the country has had. However too warm too early makes me nervous as well. Daffodils in bloom by the beginning of February and Tulips starting at the beginning of March. Thankfully it had cooled off a bit to slow things down, and hopefully a late frost will not come this year. On the bright side January & February weren't as drab and depressing as usual.
Our tomatoes, onions, and peppers are all started in the greenhouse. The fields have had their first plowing. Spring has arrived and doesn't seem to be going away. It's obvious Punxsutawney Phil doesn't live on the West coast.
