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 its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
