I have a 12 foot high snowbank sitting on top of my blueberries, courtesy of the county road commision, and snow in my yard that's 3 foot deep. Temps were in the 20's here today, and yesterday. But the last few nights have been single digit temps, and below 0 F. temps last week. It'll be a month more before we can even consider planting anything in the ground, and whatever is planted needs to be able to survive a frost.

Even with that, I'm starting to get the itch as well. I have seeds sprouting in the house, so that they'll be ready to transplant when the time is right.

I believe that I'm in zone 7 too.
