Where is Winter?

Just to set the record straight, I do not think that I have ever worn shorts on December 5th. Here in southern Idaho it seems to be around 20 degrees too warm. Add to that the fact that we are supposed to get around 9 inches of rain per year, and when I look outside right now, it will not stop raining. Snow, what snow?

My lawn is still green and my artichokes are too. Usually by now I have taken some dormant cutting off of my vines and trees in order to get a new crop for next year. This year I am truly not sure if my plants are dormant or not. It is hard to tell.

If we do not get winter soon, I may have to learn to say Kowabunga, and take surfing lessons.

I'm in Oregon and I have been wondering the same. Looking at my over 3,000 garlic cloves growing well ahead of schedule with 4" plus root systems I'm wondering if I will be in or out of next years farmers markets. Warm winter here in Oregon but a wet one.

warm way over here in Tennessee too. 60's for the last several days--about 15 degrees above "normal".
