I'm always amazed that any plant can be an annual in my insanely short season-- well, the season is a few months, I guess, as long as the plants can take some frost for all but the middle of it!! I remain sceptical whether all the 'annuals' here really do all their work in one year, or get a head start the year before ( I know some do one or the other or both...)

Cohan, your season must be longer and warmer than you think! After all, trees do grow there ;) Your climate is similar in many ways to what we have at our mountain cabin - we call it mountain but actually it is below the treeline. Usually the snow disappear in May and is back in October - November. Frosty nights can occur every month in the year. The maximum temperature can go to 30C in the summer (more than at home) and the minimum is -35C in the winter.
