  4. LOL.
    I admit, us Southern folks just don't know the cold of the north. :-) BUT, here in Florida, at 65 degrees, we still are planting gardens. In fact, most of our crops happen during 'winter.' (or at least what winter we have!) I don't think I've ever been in zero degree weather.. brrr.. but we did get a teeny bit of snow on our trampoline and in the wood pile this year! :-)

    Have a blessed week!
    In Christ,
