RE: weather rant was: just checking


I'm with Donna.  I don't plant until past mid-May unless it is in a pot I
can bring in for late spring frosts or snow.  (It snowed a heavy wet snow in
April the first year we lived here!!  Trees were all leafed-out and lots of
spring plants up and looking beautiful that year.  We lost a lot of trees
and LARGE limbs due to the weight of the snow.  We actually collected on a
clause in our insurance that covered mature trees, the mess was soooo bad.
We were just fortunate not to have any of it fall on the cars or the house.
Some neighbors weren't so lucky.)

Blessings

Bonnie

Not gonna argue... I am using a freebie bank calendar.... could
definitely be wrong. Not much for using the pre-determined dates for my
gardening habits :) Although I never plant anything tender before the
weekend before Memorial day..... unless it is in a moveable pot.
