This is a newspaper that features two columnists, Anne Lovejoy and Marty Wingate, who have been published in national gardening magazines and authored well-regarded gardening books. Sure, the NY Times has Anne Raver and Patricia Taylor, among others, but they do not have a separate gardening feed. I am very pleased about this quick response. Those of you with feed readers should be happy, too.

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.
