I just found a patch of snowdrops up and blooming in my back yard. hoo haa, it
50+ degrees here today, and the weather is weirdly warm, almost like living in
Ingrid zone 5 soon to be 6 due to global warming

Zone 5 next to Lake Michigan
This seems like fun now, but I remember 1993 here in Rochester when a
similar weather pattern resulted in a nasty ice storm. I lost electricity
and had to stay with my mother in law for almost a week. If it happens
again, I'll choose death by hypothermia. :-)
On the other hand, I have fresh chives in January.
Ha, I too, was Zone 5.5 going on 6, but this is a Zone 8 winter. My
winter garden, instead of being dormant and awaiting harvest, is
actively growing. I pick substantial heads of radicchio, and the leaves
are 90% good, unblemished by freezes. The carrots are huge. Bigger
veggies, and they are a breeze to clean. Usually, come January one has
to go through several layers of dead leaves to get to the radicchio
heart. But, at least here in SE MI, the first all-day-below-freezing
event will be tuesday.
