I noticed some inquires about “Walls o’ Water. These are adverised in many seed catalogs, Park and Jung included. Don’t know if the inquiry about an unheated porch was in reference to mine, but mine is galssed in and warm enough right now to put the potted peony roots, which have already sprouted in the package, out there, though it still can get down in the teens at night. Our present temps get to the 40’s during the day, and the snow is going slowly enough to drain into the ground. Spring is coming to the U.P.
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.
