	Linda, life goes on.  You go ahead and plant them and forget about 
the weather.  My bearded seeds have been in the freezer since August. 
 I took them out Friday after Thanksgiving and have planted them in 
pots outdoors.  Eventually, it will get cold and you may regret later 
not having planted them.  I believe (according to our local 
weatherpeople) that this is the last warm week-end of the season.  
We shall see.

Re Mike Sutton's fall crosses.  I have tried this earlier in the 
fall, not December, and have matured pods.  BUT, none of the seeds 
germinated!  I think it can be done, but not this late in the season 
and with 33o temps. Mike mentioned, that is frosty weather that can 
severely damage the pod.

range for the last two to three weeks)
