I hope the garden stays well.  I'll bet it is usually fairly warm there most all the time.

It's a heat wave 35 in the Shenandoah Valley with 7 inches of snow and a little more sprinkling from the sky.  Looks like a good day for a snowblade!!

Yep a year makes a big difference!! Last year it was in the 80's. Snowed here for the last 36 hrs. Got about 6" total.Most melted yesterday. National Weather Service said not to expect above normal Temps till May.  Friday Gurneys sent the Green Onion Sets could be another 2 weeks or more? before I can get them in the ground. Still have about a foot of frost in the ground.

Ronnie, We got down to 35 here below you. Same for tonight they are saying. Haven't put any plants in the ground yet, so no covering plants up here.

Been watching the weather the past few weeks. We have lettuces, cabbages,brocs,spinach,radish,onion,carrot,and taters all in the ground and growing. Prediction was and is below 30's at night. We gave all rows a generous covering of hay/straw to insulate and keep frost off. Inspected this afternoon. All the plants have gone crazy, never seen such growth so soon. Will probably remove hay/straw this weekend. Good luck to everybody with the gardens.

Well, bad news, the two nights just below freezing got my tomatoes, jalapenos, bell peppers and cucumbers.  Back to the feed store tomorrow after my doctor's appointment and will replant in time for the rain predicted for the weekend.

Ronnie, sorry to hear about your frost kill.  The weather here has been unseasonably cool and I haven't been in a hurry to get anything in the ground before the ground warms up.

Ronnie, We were supposed to get down to 32 last night, but only got to 37 thankfully. Sorry to hear you lost all your plants, maybe this is the last time this spring.

Hope it's the last, should have known we always get one around here.  Had them covered but that didn't save them.  A couple of years ago I lost one tomato plant but everything else made it through.  Noticed this evening that some of my green beans are popping through the ground.  Getting hungry just thinking about it.
