Daniel, the tulip photo looks like my bed--NOT! I have about a dozen tulips scattered about the place. Every year I think about buying more bulbs, but I don't.
We're having another cold snap, but at least things have greened up.
Randall, what temperature will ruin asparagus spears by freezing them? I read somewhere that 33 F will do it, but can't find anything on it now.
I have quite a few spears now and a temperature of 27 was predicted for last night, so I covered them with plastic buckets. The temperature got down to 25, so I probably saved them.
You know, Spud, I really don't know either. You probably didn't need to cover them, however. They're pretty hardy. Besides, even if they did freeze, more shoots would soon come up. I keep looking for mine to pop up, but the ground is still too cold. We had a hard freeze last night--with snow! Ugh.
