      USDA has issued a new hardiness zone map. We moved from 5B to 6A.

      Spread the word

        Am also 6A but I don't know if that's a change.


          We're still on the border of 5a - 5b, we haven't moved. But we're on the Connecticut River, which separates VT and NH, and any large body of water will moderate the temperatures. For example, when our temperature is around 35*, it might be 32* or colder at our sugarhouse, which is 8 miles away, all uphill. So our garden area here at our house, has a longer growing season.
