What part of the bluegrass state are you in? I'm a transplant from Cincy/NKY...now in sunny CA!

You are blessed with much green!

I think so. At least that is what they tell me. This will be my first veggie garden.

"Winter" is "on" right now. MAYBE mid-high 40s at night. Usually a 30 degree change for the day. Rain here mean snow in the mountains. I think we actually had some high 30 nights this year.

It's like your spring...you keep a jacket handy. And it varies a lot year to year...I've seen late December be 100 degrees every day.

I cut back my roses by NYEve, which gives them 2+ mos to rest. I always have my first blossom by mid-March.

BG is so beautiful...I miss KY. So lush. Rolling hills. Deep green grass. White fences.

The humidity...that you can keep! Razz
