This week in Oregon

For the Willamette Valley - peonies are poking their heads out of the ground and we have a lot of winter left to go.  To protect them, cover them with mulch or leaves.  Use at least 6 inches of mulch or leaves.

Eugene area - lows 28F to 40F and highs 40 to 51F.  2 days sunny, 1 cloudy then 5 days rain with the temps slowing rising during the week.  Clear nights mean cold AM temps.

For Central Oregon - lows 9F to 32F,- cold.  Highs - 26F to 43F  5 partly cloudy days and 2 days at the end of the week when temps rise, rainy.

Greenhouse tomatoes still green and growing, but cool temps are starting to slow the plants down.

Any good weather the winter weeds grow, and grow, so don't let them get too big.

Take advantage of any place leaves are available to collect and bring to the garden.  They are a great mulch and resource to keep the soil in good tilth and worms happy.
