I would be the first to admit that I’m behind on my garden blog reading. So it was only today, when I was supposed to be doing something much more necessary on the computer, that I discovered Does Your Garden Overwhelm You? Try this! It figures a maturing gardener would have such words of wisdom. I myself have long held (in regards to gardening) “if it’s not fun, don’t do it!” but I was never smart enough (or was it well-to-do enough) to hire someone to do the “hateful” chores so I had more time to garden. I just didn’t do the chores and my house looks it. Oh, well. My favorite tip from this post: “I never hired a gardener because they tend to be very free with chemicals and hedge clippers. NOT a good combination.”
When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
