What I want to know is... if I can get a local weather forcast on my home page, why shouldn't I be able to find somewhere online an almanac of the local highs and lows? That way all I have to track is when bloom or sprouting begins.

Simply put, someone has to provide that service, and that someone has to have a reason (economic or otherwise) to provide that service for you to have (free or by subscription).

Yes, it could be night time temperatures. I've kept a lot of notes over the years but I've not kept a list of daily highs and lows. This past spring was earlier but longer than usual. The first day that I checked the pots was March 7. Several pots had sprouts. So I don't have a definitive starting date. Most years, I haunt the pots for days before I see the first sprout. 2006
would have been a great opportunity.

I started keeping a high/low temperature log this past Dec. If I can
remember to continue it through this fall, and if I have fall sprouts, I might be able to answer those questions. Iris season tends to distract this type of
record keeping.

I'm not an expert at anything and don't claim to be. To be honest, I don't care all that much WHY these things happen! Just that they do. Knowing WHAT
happens, or can happen, is important to me.

Paul, I didn't consider it argumentative at all.
