"its zone 2 here. We grow some perenials but mostly very hardy annuals that can withstand a light frost. We have our first frost alot of years end of Aug or 1st part of Sept. First snow in Sept and lasting snow 1st of Oct. so our gardens are white till May. We can catch Graylin out of the creek but most are only 5-8 inches...but once in awhile a bigger one moves thru. They can handle the current as it is always flowing strong. Thank-you so much for your interest and feel free to ask anything you wish about our gardens or outside up here...Gary "
