Had a frost a few days ago at 5.5 degrees below freezing, but nothing appeared damaged.  There will probably be one or two more frosts this month, most likely not later than the 15th.

Warm weather is predicted for the foreseeable future, so I turned my outside water on and am watering my garden with about 3 inches.  

I'm still not sowing any seeds directly in the garden because there's a good chance whatever has been eating my seedlings in the past will still be here.  I may plant a few just as a test.

I've been lazy about starting my cold weather crops.  Finally planted quite a few peas and beets in containers a week ago.  They are one inch high now.  I put them outside in the sun and bring them in to a dark room at night.

I never thought of using a root feeder for weeding. So clever!

I have a lot of weeds right now. Staycation next week. Hope I can get some then.

Joan I loved doing grafting this winter. The season for it is over but I get to follow my progress. That was one of the more successful ones. Some others are taking off too. You are right whip and tongue is strong and does not leave exposed bare wood so seems healthy too.

We are not to last frost date yet. But it got into high 80s yesterday. I hooe there is no more frost.

Plinius where are you from may I ask

I'm impressed with your grafting successes. The whip and tongue graft looks complicated, but it does give strength, at least that is how it looks. I have never done a graft. This one looks so neat and precise.

We had some light frost, a few months ago. From December till today every month has been 2 or 3 °C. too warm.
