Coping with Cold

To Judy, in the Garden State,
what part of New Jersey are you in? The climate where I live, Cliffwood
Beach in southern Middlesex County, is moderated by the Raritan Bay. It may
be balmy in the morning when I step out but when I get to work in South
Orange it often feels 15 degrees (F) colder. We've had frost though the
last 2 nights. I imagine further northwest, away from the coast and up
towards the Appalachian ridges of Sussex county, the seasons may be weeks
I've got great soil, sandy but full of oak roots, that needs constant
organic amendment. Cypripedium acaule grows nearby. However just around the
house, and in certain spots in the back, are large clayey patches I guess
from when they dug out the cellar.
