It pays to check out the sidebars of the blogs you visit. That’s how I discovered Diary of a Plain Dirt Gardener, which was listed on the sidebar of Hands in the Dirt. Paul Krantz, author of DPDG, happens to be the Executive Editor for
Better Homes and Gardens Online and Midwest Living Online, so I’m sure he’ll have info that can be found nowhere else.

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.
