know this-

i have been trying REALLY hard to not complain too much that winter keeps popping back up as soon as the weather gets nice. just smile, nod, and keep busy inside while i wait for a nicer day to go outside. but i must just mention this. last night i watched the news a little longer after american idol than i would have because they kept talking about what to do to keep you plants alive through the freezing night. they showed this little contraption to keep the plants warm, but i didn't have those. and i didn't feel like searching for a tarp. nor did i have a bunch of little planters. so at 9:30 last night i grabbed all the ceramic mugs and some bigger bowls and put them over each plant, in hopes that the freezing temperatures would not kill those veggies i worked so hard for. for crying out loud, i just want my plants to last! and then this morning i looked out and just laughed because my little garden looked so sad all covered up. its okay, go ahead and laugh, too. its kinda funny.

We were very impressed with your creativity. Could I put my plug in for moving toward the southeast for grad school. You can have more of a mix bag of weather, more traditional, not to mention closer to grandparents who would love to hug and kiss and play with some little Brewers.
