Ro probably already knows about the Gardening Conversations broadcast by North Country Public Radio. Apparently this radio station regularly broadcasts conversations with the local Cooperative Extension horticulturalists on topics relevant to all cold climate gardeners. My only regret is you have to listen to the broadcast; transcripts are not available. I always process information better when I read it than when I listen to it, so it’s a handicap for me, but it may not be for you.
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.
