January freeze

Wow it's been forever since my last writing. It's the middle of January and we're in a cold freeze and everyone is in a panic. I think we've forgot we live in New England or something. At least heating oil prices have come down, but not as much as gasoline. I guess they figure we ALL need to stay warm but we don't all need to drive. Evident when I see how people drive around to every store to find that exact thing they are looking for... like the perfect shade of blue millionbell or pink geranium. I guess that's the American way. Some one said to me: people will never stay home if they can help it.
Just got in some pansies plugs but we've decided to wait to plant them until the temperature rises... not worth the extra cost. We're experimenting with how they do being grown under cool conditions, but they need to be acclimated first. We're getting a water heater to water the plants too. Should help a lot with pushing things a bit.
