For the second year on the trot I've had to get the lawnmower out in December to give the lawn one final cut for the year Confused

While out in the back garden I stumbled across this, much to my surprise. Obviously someone didn't tell the Midwest Mix Daffodil bulbs it isn't Spring yet...

Here in New Orleans it was 76 degrees today. I still have bell peppers growing on my plants... The peas are growing like crazy. Just no flowers yet. Turnip greens are growing like mad. About to start harvesting some...Broccoli and cabbage is still kinda small... Crazy year here too... But I'm liking it. We have a 320 day growing season here...(In reality it never stops).

I was out in shorts yesterday..

I have no grass, or other landscaping.. Superstorm Sandy made sure of that. Between the salt water and fuel oil from unerground tanks and over turned boats, nearly all of the landscaping has seen it's last days..

Enjoy it Mike. Where you live, Mike, the weather can change in a very short time.

Although it's all going to change in a few days, we (Chicago) have shattered the record for number of days in a row without measurable snowfall. 290ish days in a row now. And yes, I've mowed my lawn twice since Thanksgiving. Twice. Thanksgiving. Chicago.
