Here in Southern California, frost and ice are rare...we rarely have 400 chill hours, much less frost.
This year we have had 4 frost days...most very light. Today however, we had ice. It dripped from the roof like it does in the high country. Many plants are being "cut" back by the cold. And yet, many are just fine!
The hills and local mountains have snow around us, and in the sun it got up to 60 degrees. Our house is cold and feels downright damp. At this time of year, there is that tendency to feel damp in winter, perhaps due to the fact that our house is on a slab. However, most houses get that way in winter, right?. It is definitely a time for sweaters and coats.
How are you doing this winter? What is happening in your garden?
Happy New Year!!
