Rediscovered: Notes from Zone 4

– Posted in: Recommended Links

This is what I get for browsing all my blogs from a feed reader (aka aggregator). I had stopped getting feeds from Notes from Zone Four. I did check back every so often, but apparently not often enough. They are now publishing their blog here, in some kind of new venture called gardenporn. They posted the announcement in the template part of their old blog location, so I never saw it in the RSS feed. Just in case the same thing happened to you, now you know where to look. I’m looking forward to catching up. Frank and Lisa are very ambitious gardeners, and they don’t stint on expense. (Or so it seems to me.) It’s always interesting (I’ll stop short of saying “amazing”) to see what they’re up to next.

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.
