I mentioned ordering more tomato seeds. I am trying Park’s Whopper. I received seeds from Park in about 5 days. It has been over a week now, and I haven’t received what I ordered from Burpee. From the looks of things, I won’t get those Walls o’ Water out anytime soon. We’ve 8-10″ more of snow, and though it is going to be up in the 40’s this week that 3 feet out there isn’t going to melt away very soon. I had hoped to get the tomatoes going sooner so I could get them out really early. Need some more seed planting medium, too.
By the way, I’m going to try growing strawberries in growing bags. Think I’ll hang them on a shepherd’s crook in my flower garden.

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.
