Digging for gold under the snow...

Hello all--Impressive information, Jim, and very welcome to me in my 
Glenview 5a area. because it means that I can try some of what you're doing 
only about half a zone away--and hope for similar results --even without the 
cold frame.  Up to freezing today--snow melting and sliding off the 
roof--watering the tender (African)  stuff that stays planted at just inside 
the drip line of the eaves.  (mostly dry and helps some of the Africans come 
through the winter.  , e.g, Eucomis, and Crinum E. Bosanquet.

I worked up the courage to uncover the most protected cold frames today. It
was hard to get to them: when the neighbors cleared the snow from their
driveway, they heaped it onto our lot. The cold frame area is surrounded by
a three foot deep dyke of snow.
