    I always wait to hold off planting much in the garden. A few years back, I planted tomatoes three times after they were killed off by late frost.

    This past week, we had two nights of hard frost. Lost every leaf on the evodia trees, the wysteria had every leaf and bloom killed, the asparagus is gone, as well as many other things. Looks like the strawbrries are ok, but the early fruit may of burned back.

    After warm weather since late March and everything blooming out three weeks early, it feels like we are in the middle of summer. Except for all the dead plants around here. :cry:

    But I did see my first hummingbird this morning.... :thumbsup:

    For veggies, cold frames and plastic tunnels are your friend in this climate. Not much I can do about the 40 ft tall apple tree, except yell at the buds to stay closed.

    No hummingbirds here, yet, but the feeder is ready.
