Winter never seems the same anymore. When I was a kid it seemed like the snowfall came in feet instead of inches. These days we spend more time going back and forth between snow and non-snow days that I have a feeling that all my plants are going to be confused soon if it doesn’t get warmer and stay warmer soon. Consistent temperatures would really be beneficial to all outdoor plants these days.

Something I can be sure of is that my plants will be heaving. As in trying to work their roots out of the ground. Of course, that could end up causing their demise, but my plants don’t seem to worry much about the real things in life, like survival.
