Greengirl, the newbie gardener writing for a Minnesota newspaper, has started her 2006 gardening season. Actually, she can’t be labeled a “noob” anymore if this is her second season. She gets an awful lot of comments on some of her entries, and they are almost as much fun to read as her entries.

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.
