Just stumbled across the website of The Renegade Gardener, the self-proclaimed “lone voice of horticultural reason for USDA Zones 2 through 4.” He’s opinionated (check out the ten tenets of renegade gardening), funny (read his bio), and informative (study up on his garden myths). I would like to think that this blog is another voice of reason for the cold climate gardener, but his site is a definite must-read.
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
