Little above 0*F here with a foot or so of heavy snow. My gardening is indoors. I planted a crocus pot to force. The chard and alpine strawberrys and cilantro are up in their soil blocks on the window sill.

Awesome Turan, you just made want to plant something, hmmmm. We only have a couple inches of snow but it's freeezing out there, the truck started hard, but the sun is shining! I heard a rumor it is supposed to warm back up shortly.

Freezing!!

Post  efirvin on 11/13/2012, 3:36 pm

Saturday night we got down to -8 degrees! Heat turned up and I stayed indoors! Windy too so the wind chill is rough even today. Growing my herbs inside. Got enough oregano to tie up and dry some, and basil to put up. The rosemary seems to like its winter home too.

We have had threats of snow several times, but yesterday was the first time we had snow down here in town - the hills around us have had a few dustings in the last few weeks. It got up to 44 today so what little snow we did have is gone. You have gotten most of the state's snow so far. Windchill, however, has been CHILLY at times! But, if the old wives' tale about 90 days after fog comes precipitation, January and February could be UGLY!!!

Not sure if it is supposed to hold 'true' everywhere or if it is just something they say in this area. Every year I tell myself I am going to track it, and every year I forget!

I am just hoping now for some decent weather on Black Friday. Standing outside all night can get pretty bad.

Brave you! The only thing I do on Black Friday is nibble on leftovers and take a leisurely walk in the hills.

I am half way or so between you guys~ 32* & sunny. The forecast is storm coming in later with snow the next couple days and then warming to rain. The shearer is penciled in for Friday, so I would rather it stay dry/cold. First set of lambs on the ground with the rest should start in the next week or so. I must of forgot to write it down when I put the ram in Embarassed

Our upcoming week looks like 30's and not much moisture... We haven't had much snow at all this winter.

We got hammered with a pretty nasty storm Friday afternoon into Saturday. I have almost 10" of snow at my place in between Loveland and Berthoud, CO. We had lots of high winds and blowing snow and just plain ole nasty weather all day yesterday. I had drifts about 4' deep along most of my drive coming into the place.
Today I hope to finish up my indoor seed planting. Ground cherries, more tomatoes and more peppers and getting my Carrot Week 2013 box in order.
Hard to believe with weather like this that spring is here!

It has been cold, stuck in the 20s last 3 days. We saw a storm in the south but only got a flurry.

I am getting impatient. But I really need to wait to start seeding for another week. I do not know if I can hold on that long. Maybe some broccoli......
The cumin is sprouting now. It looks like carrot sprouts.
