Many plants just don't want to give up, though, especially the herbs. Besides the rosemary, which is still doing fine on the back porch, the following remain.
While our frost dates don't seem to be moving much, the average temperatures are. Every spring I think about gardening year round, but by fall I've lost my enthusiasm for the idea. If it is going to be this temperate, maybe all I need to do is protect the hardier vegetables against frost as I am with the rosemary.
Speaking of spring, the seed catalogs have already begun arriving. And already I am fighting the urge to get carried away. Same old story.
