Thingfish23 is “documenting the rather daunting task of returning our 75′ X 660′ lot to some sort of natural equilibrium. [His] goal is for [his] house and . . . family to exist in a harmonious way with the plants and animals that have been forced to move elsewhere due to poor stewardship on the previous occupants’ parts.” It’s clear he’s putting a lot of thought into this, and learning as he goes along. It will be interesting to keep tabs on him.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
