I live in Central Florida but my family is from upstate NY...my Aunt in Helena my Great Aunt & Uncle in Buffalo, nieces and nephews in the city others in Earlton & Greenville... I don't know how you all deal with all that snow for 5 months every year...not me! In February I will still have days worthy of shorts and a t-shirt and blooming tropicals happily pulling weeds.
Will you have to dig and store for the winter? I cringe at the thought. I still have stuff I have to drag in on (OUR) cold blasts for my deep tropicals, I shouldn't even talk...my Noni berry is getting big, next pot will have rollers...UGGG
