    We moved 3 years ago to 8 acres just north of Tyler, Tx from Livingston, Tx. In Livingston, which is 75 miles north of Houston, I grew a vegetable garden all year long. At our new place, which is 170 miles further north, my futile attempts at a winter garden froze. But right now a low tonight of 14F is predicted and the low of 18F last night didn't kill the collard greens, so maybe there is hope yet.

    He doesn't need one. The snow never sticks because he's so hotheaded! Haha.

    I underestimated the drop in temperature, so I'll have to start my seedlings over again and hopefully get 2 harvests by summer, possibly 3 by fall.

    I'm hoping my spinach and cabbage will surprise me and sprout new leaves.
