We had fresh corn from my corn patch this Thursday. It was good.
The corn plants didn’t produce as much corn as they could have because I didn’t mulch them as early as I should have. But I’m happy that I got anything.
Fresh corn tastes really good.
And I can always promise to do better next time.
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.
