Where is this global warming we keep hearing about? Shouldn't our growing seasons be noticeably longer if Polar bears are in danger of falling thru melting arctic ice and permafrost is going, going, gone?

Well, we missed it in southern Milw. cty. Tuesday we got down to 42 and Wednesday nite 40. Guess living close to the lake helps. It's going to be warmer for awhile now so we don't have to worry.

I had carried lots of plants inside and into the garage, and covered flowers and vegies. Hubby said in the morning there was frost on some of the low-lying covers, but I could not observe any signs of frost having occurred in the yard. Except the morning glories don't look quite as perky as normal perhaps. But no withered leaves or anything. I am about 8 miles from the lake in northern Racine County, so that probably helped. Have already harvested lots of tomatoes and beans and cucumbers and things, so not many vegies to worry about. Mostly I was covering up various flowers (those darn dahlias are finally blooming) and the tomatillos. I planted things so late I have gladiolas blooming right now.

About global warming, have you forgotten last year? The first really hard, killed-everything frost that covering did not impede was Nov. 10th! That is freakishly abnormal and extremely late for my area. I was picking beans on Nov. 4th last year, that is weird. This is WI!
