Well after my li'l Apr1st joke I was outside this evening and decided that my little ole garden shed could hold a few of my containers with some 1" high and new sprouts. I have 6 or 7 plastic containers in one of those plastic under the bed storage bins with a top sitting on a bench. I hate to move it so I went to my straw bin and covered it. I also covered a few daffordils and some newly emerging strawberry plants with the straw. Tomorrow I might spread some wet leaves back on some areas although I don't have much out yet. Most is still in seed trays and hasn't even made it to the back porch yet. Minnesota=state of extremes, you gotta love it to stay here.
