I Have Moved...

OK, not physically. Apparently I have moved Hardiness Zones. 

For those that are not gardeners, a hardiness zone give guidance on what may or may not grow and/or thrive in your area.  Most tags, packet or descriptive provided by growers for a plant or seed indicate the zone range that the plant can survive in. 

According to the new USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map chart, our location is no longer Zone 5b, it is now Zone 6a. I used to be light blue but now am green. Wahoo!
I am hoping this means that some of my flowers and herbs may make it through the winter better than they usually do. I am especially hoping that my two rosemary plants left outside survive.  How I love rosemary!  I brought one plant inside to overwinter but haven't had much success with that in the past. 

I am also hoping it means I can start my direct sow veggies earlier, too.  Spring is right around the corner

Have you "changed" zones?  Click on this link and enter your ZIP to check out which zone you are in. 


  1. Yes now I am an 8a I can't remember what I was but I want to say it was a 6 or 7. Maybe I'll have better luck buying plants for this zone.

  2. We've build a fairly sound foundation details for you already nevertheless it's always advantageous to carry on performing investigation in your
    own. Fusing the dystopian super-hero elements from the X-Men's "Days of Future Past," the wild and wooly futurescapes of Mad Max, as well as the tragic pathos
    of Clint Eastwood's archetypal Western heroes, Millar's tale finds Wolverine in a crossroads with who
    he really wants to get and who he actually is.
    the devil himself, since nobody else would go near him''.
