This January has been the warmest on record for the Seattle area. That is a good thing and a bad thing. The good part is getting to go outside without a coat and play in the garden. The bad part is all the plants are starting to grow well before they should. Will the fruit trees have enough chill time to produce fruit? Will the fruit blossoms freeze if there is a cold spell or frost? I'll cross my fingers and hope all will be fruitful this summer! Even some of the veggies have managed to survive the mild weather.
