I was just looking a the the 8-14 day forecast and it looks like we’re going to be warmer than normal for the next few weeks… considering that November was on average one of the coldest on record, I’ll take it!
Sadly this is a double edged sword. I’m not the biggest fan… who am kidding… I really don’t like winter. So milder temps get my happy glands going this time of year. However, in this area, winter temperatures can swing drastically. Mild temperatures mean, no snow and with no snow, no “winter blanket” on the plants. So should the temperatures drop drastically, there is nothing to keep the plants “warm”.
With any luck, it will snow before the temperatures get really cold!
