Im anxiously waiting for spring to come to see what made it through the cold and what will need to be replaced. We have been in the 70's the last few days its tricked some of my fruit trees I noticed a few tiny leaves starting to come out hopefully we wont freeze again.

I see one 36 in the next 10 days. Hopefully not enough to kill the new leaf that will probably be finished by the end of the weekend. Grew out another 10" or so today.

You guys with your warm weather....it's been warm here (for INdiana) but that means 30's and an occasional 40. The big news is there hasn't been any sun here for like 14 days. All overcast. No direct sun. But the good news is that I've only had to water anything once a week for the last two weeks, even new seedlings only need a light mist occasionally. So I've just about had a vacation! So I started some super hot pepper seeds today for spring season, I like to start them early so they get peppers earlier.
I started habanero, bhut jolokia, starfish, bishops crown, jamaican red and yellow scotch bonnets, tabasco, choc habanero, white habanero, yellow peter pepper, and thai hot. When I watered the seeds in with warm water, the fumes made me cough, so they must be good. Also I picked 7 Bhut Jolokias from the greenhouse. We tried to eat a small slice of one, three of us ate three small slices. Since I was the girl, I ended spitting mine out. The guys thought they could tough it out, they'll be sorry later!

I think the IC I got from you prefers it down here . 2/3 of my bananas are working on putting out a leaf (one of them is already out a lot).

Wow. I got my thong out at 37*F and you people with your 70*F. Today is 51*F. I am ready fro spring too but I cannot take my bananas out until end of May or later. Even though Spring is in March. By the way March 14 is the time change again. My water bananas in the basement are fine buy the way. At 50*F at the coolest they are fine sitting in water. Hard to believe isn't it. The second one I have I started growing it myself in water. Not even sure which kind it is. I started it last June. So far so good. I soon will be planting my water lily seeds to see if any sprout.

My Spring Fever is abating fast.

It reached 82F yesterday and I caught my first pompano of the year. Made it almondine with a side of linguine in white clam sauce - with real fresh clams from the local wholesaler. The garden stuff planted between the bananas is taking off, and tomorrow 35 big spinach plants go in - started from seed.

As I trim off the frost damaged dead stuff from my bananas, I'm grateful that another year of naner fruit won't be lost. Forcast from now on looks good.

To all you folks suffering from the cold - don't forget about the thousands of forclosed homes here in So Fla. Many bargains to be found.

Dan

I hope the temps don't go into the 70s for awhile because I don't want any fruit trees messed up. I seen go from temps in the 70s to snow a week later.
