The trees are too. One of our plum trees is only a few days of sunshine away from bursting out in blooms. It's too early for it to flower. It would be so easy for a damaging frost between now and April 15th to completely decimate any 2012 plum harvest. Fortunately they are small trees and if I keep an eye on the plums and the weather I should be able to protect them. The weather forecast today actually has 60 degree temperatures, but it also calls for rain which means very little outside time for this gardener. The normal February cool weather returns soon but the warm days coming closer!
An Update From the Vegetable Garden:

The rest of the vegetable garden is in desperate need of preparation. The weeds have grown all over and we're covered in self-sowing cilantro! I love cilantro put we don't need it in the quantities we have. Maybe soon the garden will dry out enough to work the soil!
