Yep, that describes the current weather pattern.  It is mild for January and we are in a rain cluster for the next few days.

I'm not complaining, don't get me wrong.  I just have a nagging worry about global climate change.  Still, I know that weather patterns are not climate patterns, and I hope for the best.

I'm creating a cold room in the greenhouse for growing the more cold tolerant crops which could not be put outside until early Spring.  Usually, I miss the deadlines.  So, in big wooden shipping crates, I've placed tons of soil and compost in the section of the greenhouse which is not being heated, except by passive solar means.  I've planted four containers and so far the mixed lettuce which I planted first on January 10th is up.
