Too, too early!

Second day of spring, 87 degree record heat, and we are a month ahead of ourselves, garden-wise.

I'm not worried (nothing you can do about it anyway), but one year when the tender new ferns were at this point, they got a snowy frosting and that was the end of them for that year.

My hostas are even starting to pop out of the ground, and I don't think they are hardy enough to stand cold and snow. I may need to get a bale of straw and give them a layer of protection if it gets cold again (very likely here in West Michigan).
