Those of us imprisoned in the damn cold north are incredibly jealous of you sunny, warm gardeners in the south. It was 5 below this morning and snow is predicted this afternoon. I'm still three weeks from even planting tomato seeds inside. Life is not fair.
(p.s. by the way, I hope you get a sunburn!)
I've only heard about "Cabin Fever"
I'm pretty sure there are a couple of paved roads leading south to take you away from all that cold, nasty weather if you were so inclined. I'd be hard pressed to leave though, if for nothing else but the fall colors you experience.
P.S. I don't sunburn, I simply turn different shades of tan to brown as the summer progresses. If I were to bare my bottom, I'd be a much older male version of the Coppertone Girl. Now, try to get that image out of your mind's eye.
