I wasn't particularly feeling "left out" of the Easter snow many gardeners reported. Actually, I was a little relieved to be sitting in mild winter country.
It was a total surprise to me when the big snow/slush flakes starting hitting the windshield as I drove up the hill towards home tonight. I knew it was cold today, but I still didn't even think about snow. The flakes are smaller now and I doubt much will stick.
Just as well. I have tomato, basil, onion, fennel and pea sprouts under the fluorescent light in the garage. The tomato and basil seedlings will not be happy to stay out there unless it warms up (and they get too leggy trying to grow in the house by window light).
