By By Steve Pool

SEATTLE - Those of you with green thumbs always want to make sure your plants don't suffer freezing temperatures.

In an average year, Seattle's first frost doesn't occur until Nov. 11. Although this year, we were a bit early as we dropped below freezing on Nov. 2.

If you've already put the plants away and are eager to get going on your 2004 garden, our typical last frost occurs on March 24.

For my girlfriends birthday we had a party at her parents. We knew the nest was there but the owner hadn't seen or heard the osprey for a day or two. He asked me to fly my drone up and see if any was wrong. I flew up and found that there were two eggs inside.

The secret to this garden is simple.
I used recycled grass clippings.
